2.6.25-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us

From: Darren Jenkins <darrenrjenkins@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 4fc89e3911aa5357b55b85b60c4beaeb8a48a290 upstream

Coverity CID: 1356 RESOURCE_LEAK

I found a very old patch for this that was Acked but did not get applied

There looks to be a small leak in isdn_writebuf_stub() in isdn_common.c, when
copy_from_user() returns an un-copied data length (length != 0). The below
patch should be a minimally invasive fix.
