Subject: [PATCH net] ptp: ptp_read should not release queue

Firstly, queue is not the memory allocated in ptp_read;
Secondly, other processes may block at ptp_read and wait for conditions to be 
met to perform read operations.

Reported-and-tested-by: syzbot+9704e6f099d952508943@...kaller.appspotmail.com
Fixes: 8f5de6fb2453 ("ptp: support multiple timestamp event readers")
