Subject: [PATCH 2/2] netfilter: nf_osf: avoid passing pointer to local var

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>

gcc-10 points out that a code path exists where a pointer to a stack
variable may be passed back to the caller:

net/netfilter/nfnetlink_osf.c: In function 'nf_osf_hdr_ctx_init':
cc1: warning: function may return address of local variable [-Wreturn-local-addr]
net/netfilter/nfnetlink_osf.c:171:16: note: declared here
  171 |  struct tcphdr _tcph;
      |                ^~~~~

I am not sure whether this can happen in practice, but moving the
variable declaration into the callers avoids the problem.
