Subject: [PATCH 4.16 23/81] Revert "macsec: missing dev_put() on error in macsec_newlink()"

4.16-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@...cle.com>


[ Upstream commit bd28899dd34f9283c567f7eeb31bb546f10820b5 ]

This patch is just wrong, sorry.  I was trying to fix a static checker
warning and misread the code.  The reference taken in macsec_newlink()
is released in macsec_free_netdev() when the netdevice is destroyed.

This reverts commit 5dcd8400884cc4a043a6d4617e042489e5d566a9.
