Subject: Re: [PATCH][V3] scsi: cxgbi: remove redundant __kfree_skb call on skb and free cst->atid


Colin,

> The error return path via label rel_resource checks for a non-null skb
> before free'ing it.  However, skb is always null at this exit path, so
> the null check and the free are redundant and can be removed.
> Removing this allows the original goto's to rel_resource to be cleaned
> up; the first can be replaced by a return of -EINVAL, the second can
> be replaced by a more appropriate -ENOMEM return and fix a memory leak
> by freeing csk->atid.

Applied to 5.2/scsi-queue, thanks!
