Subject[PATCH 3.13 023/162] hyperv: Fix a bug in netvsc_start_xmit()
Date
3.13.11.11 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: KY Srinivasan <kys@microsoft.com>

[ 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@microsoft.com>.

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