> Commit 9a6cdf52b85e "xen-netback: fix memory leaks on XenBus disconnect"
> added missing code to fix a memory leak by calling vfree() in the
> appropriate place.
> Unfortunately subsequent commit f16f1df65f1c "xen-netback: protect
> resource cleaning on XenBus disconnect" then wrapped this call to vfree()
> in a spin lock, leading to a BUG due to incorrect context.
> 
> Patch #1 makes the existing code more readable
> Patch #2 fixes the problem

Series applied, thanks.
