You hyperv guys really have to get your act together. This is not
properly submitted.

Most importantly, this is a serious reference to free memory bug.
Therefore it should be targetted at 'net' not 'net-next'.

Secondly, you do not CC: stable for networking changes, you instead
ask me to queue it up for my next batch of -stable networking changes.

Thirdly, your Subject line is malformed. You should not use
"Drivers: " as a prefix. Just the driver name is sufficient.
You should also not mentionen the target GIT tree outside of the
[PATCH ...] bracketed area.

Also, please be cognizant of how much of my time you unnecessarily
consume when you make a malformed submission like this. That is
time I could spend reviewing other patches.

Thank you.
