[PATCH 3.16 38/55] hyperv: Fix a bug in netvsc_start_xmit()

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Oct 12 2014 - 22:29:02 EST

3.16-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: KY Srinivasan <kys@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit dedb845ded56ded1c62f5398a94ffa8615d4592d ]

After the packet is successfully sent, we should not touch the skb
as it may have been freed. This patch is based on the work done by
Long Li <longli@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>.

In this version of the patch I have fixed issues pointed out by David.
David, please queue this up for stable.
