Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 17/34] netfilter: nf_tables: fix leaking object reference count

From: Taehee Yoo <ap420073@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit b91d9036883793122cf6575ca4dfbfbdd201a83d ]

There is no code that decreases the reference count of stateful objects
in error path of the nft_add_set_elem(). this causes a leak of reference
count of stateful objects.

Test commands:
   $nft add table ip filter
   $nft add counter ip filter c1
   $nft add map ip filter m1 { type ipv4_addr : counter \;}
   $nft add element ip filter m1 { 1 : c1 }
   $nft add element ip filter m1 { 1 : c1 }
   $nft delete element ip filter m1 { 1 }
   $nft delete counter ip filter c1

Result:
   Error: Could not process rule: Device or resource busy
   delete counter ip filter c1
   ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

At the second 'nft add element ip filter m1 { 1 : c1 }', the reference
count of the 'c1' is increased then it tries to insert into the 'm1'. but
the 'm1' already has same element so it returns -EEXIST.
But it doesn't decrease the reference count of the 'c1' in the error path.
Due to a leak of the reference count of the 'c1', the 'c1' can't be
removed by 'nft delete counter ip filter c1'.
