Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 208/330] brcmfmac: Fix double freeing in the fmac usb data path

From: Raveendran Somu <raveendran.somu@...ress.com>

[ Upstream commit 78179869dc3f5c0059bbf5d931a2717f1ad97ecd ]

When the brcmf_fws_process_skb() fails to get hanger slot for
queuing the skb, it tries to free the skb.
But the caller brcmf_netdev_start_xmit() of that funciton frees
the packet on error return value.
This causes the double freeing and which caused the kernel crash.
