Ok, the patch I suggested was a kind of a guess, now I understand that
it breaks important logic.

However, we have a case [1] where j1939_session_skb_queue() is called
but the corresponding j1939_session_skb_drop_old() is not called and it
causes a memory leak.

I tried to investigate it a little bit: the thing is that
j1939_session_skb_drop_old() can be called only when processing
J1939_ETP_CMD_CTS. On the contrary, as I can see,
j1939_session_skb_queue() can be called independently from
J1939_ETP_CMD_CTS so the two functions obviously do not correspond to
each other.

In reproducer case there is a J1939_ETP_CMD_RTS processing, then
we send some messages (where j1939_session_skb_queue() is called) and
after that J1939_ETP_CMD_ABORT is processed and we lose those skbs.
