My intention was to fix the problem (arg->fn() call with NULL filter)
without changing any other functionality, and always incrementing
arg->count once seemed to be the intended behavior. However, since
mall_delete() just returns -EOPNOTSUPP, it might be the case that author
of matchall expected to always have single filter configured when cls
API calls mall_walk(). What would you suggest?
