SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] ptp: free ptp clock properly
Hello, Andrea, Colin, all,

This fix is really not needed, as its creation is based on the assumption
that the Ubuntu kernel 5.3.0-40-generic has the upstream commit 75718584cb3c,
which is the real fix to this crash.

Apologies, but the assumption above is not correct, 5.3.0-40-generic does
not have 75718584cb3c. If it had 75718584cb3c it would be a fix and the ptp-related
crash (described in https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1864754) would not happen.

This way https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kernel-team/2020-March/108562.html fix
is not really needed.
