mac80211: free netdev on dev_alloc_name() error
The change to remove free_netdev() from ieee80211_if_free() erroneously didn't add the necessary free_netdev() for when ieee80211_if_free() is called directly in one place, rather than as the priv_destructor. Add the missing call. Fixes: cf124db566e6 ("net: Fix inconsistent teardown and release of private netdev state.") Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
