Subject: [net-2.6 PATCH 2/6] net: remove kfree_skb on a NULL pointer in
	af_netlink.c

From: John Fastabend <john.r.fastabend@...el.com>

This removes a kfree_skb that is being called on a NULL pointer when
do_one_broadcast() is sucessful.  And moves the kfree_skb into
do_one_broadcast() for the error case.
