Subject: [PATCH 0/4] Netfilter fixes for net

Hi David,

The following patchset contains fixes for your net tree, they are:

1) Unitialize the set element key and data from the commit path,
   otherwise this leaks chain refcount if the transaction is aborted,
   reported by Thomas Graf.

2) Fix crash when updating chains without no counters in nf_tables,
   this slipped through in the new transaction infrastructure, reported
   by Matteo Croce.

3) Replace all mutex_lock_interruptible() by mutex_lock() in the Netfilter
   tree, suggested by Patrick McHardy. This implicitly fixes the problem
   that Eric Dumazet reported in:

4) Fix error return code in nf_tables when deleting set element in
   nf_tables if the transaction cannot be allocated, from Julia Lawall.
