Subject: [PATCH 03/13] netfilter: nf_flow_table: fix netdev refcnt leak

From: Taehee Yoo <>

flow_offload_alloc() calls nf_route() to get a dst_entry. Internally,
nf_route() calls ip_route_output_key() that allocates a dst_entry and
holds it. So, a dst_entry should be released by dst_release() if
nf_route() is successful.

Otherwise, netns exit routine cannot be finished and the following
message is printed:

[  257.490952] unregister_netdevice: waiting for lo to become free. Usage count = 1

Fixes: ac2a66665e23 ("netfilter: add generic flow table infrastructure")
