Subject: [PATCH v2 net-next] icmp: Remove some spurious dropped packet profile hits from the ICMP path

From: Rick Jones <rick.jones2@...com>

If icmp_rcv() has successfully processed the incoming ICMP datagram, we
should use consume_skb() rather than kfree_skb() because a hit on the likes
of perf -e skb:kfree_skb is not called-for.

Signed-off-by: Rick Jones <rick.jones2@...com>

---

A test system hit with a flood ping hits on perf top -e ksb:kfre_skb before
the change and none after for the normal/success path.  The IPv6 path would
be somewhat more ugly.  For the time being, just deal with the overlap on
ping_rcv() between the two to avoid a possible double free of an skb.
