Subject: [PATCH] tipc: fix error handling of expanding buffer headroom

Coverity says:

*** CID 1338065:  Error handling issues  (CHECKED_RETURN)
/net/tipc/udp_media.c: 162 in tipc_udp_send_msg()

164     	clone = skb_clone(skb, GFP_ATOMIC);
165     	skb_set_inner_protocol(clone, htons(ETH_P_TIPC));
166     	ub = rcu_dereference_rtnl(b->media_ptr);
167     	if (!ub) {

When expanding buffer headroom over udp tunnel with pskb_expand_head(),
it's unfortunate that we don't check its return value. As a result, if
the function returns an error code due to the lack of memory, it may
cause unpredictable consequence as we unconditionally consider that
it's always successful.
