Please add a Fixes tag here, I think it is probably your memory leak fix
which introduced this issue. And a Reported-by, to give credits to bug
reporters.

Plus one minor issue below:

This is at most a coding style change, please do not mix
coding style changes in bug fixes. You can always push coding
style changes separately when net-next is open.

Thanks.
