    rtlwifi: Fix leak of skb when processing C2H_BT_INFO

    With commit 0a9f8f0a1ba9 ("rtlwifi: fix btmpinfo timeout while
processing
    C2H_BT_INFO"), calling rtl_c2hcmd_enqueue() with rtl_c2h_fast_cmd()
true,
    the routine returns without freeing that skb, thereby leaking it.

    This issue has been discussed at
https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new/issues/401
    and the fix tested there.

    Fixes: 0a9f8f0a1ba9 ("rtlwifi: fix btmpinfo timeout while processing
C2H_BT_INFO")
