Subject[PATCH 5.3 07/25] net-sysfs: Call dev_hold always in netdev_queue_add_kobject
Date
From: Jouni Hogander <jouni.hogander@unikie.com>

[ Upstream commit e0b60903b434a7ee21ba8d8659f207ed84101e89 ]

Dev_hold has to be called always in netdev_queue_add_kobject.
Otherwise usage count drops below 0 in case of failure in
kobject_init_and_add.

Fixes: b8eb718348b8 ("net-sysfs: Fix reference count leak in rx|netdev_queue_add_kobject")
