Hiding a goto or return in a macro is generally discouraged as it may
confuse people reading or updating the code. See e.g. commit
94f826b8076e ("net: fix a potential rcu_read_lock() imbalance in
rt6_fill_node()") for an example of such problem - which was likely the
trigger for removal of NLA_PUT() and related macros shortly after.
