[PATCH v5] staging: rtl8723bs: remove re-positioned call to kfree in os_dep/ioctl_cfg80211.c

Date: Sun May 07 2017 - 18:19:23 EST

A kernel cloned from
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git and
built with the latest RTL8723BS driver included (CONFIG_RTL8723BS=m)
fails when booting on an Intel Atom device with the RTL8723BS wifi
chipset due to an error in

The kernel when booted with Ubuntu 17.04 results in an unusable system
however with the following patch booting is successful and the system
is usable. The patch and kernel builds have been tested against on an
Intel Compute Stick (STCK1A32WFC model).

This version of the patch (version 5) has tabs rather than spaces, no
wrap around, a changelog and a sign-off email.
