>From the commit message:
In nl80211_get_ftm_responder_stats, a new skb is created via nlmsg_new
named msg. If nl80211hdr_put() fails, then msg should be released. The
return statement should be replace by goto to error handling code.

The nla_put_failure will execute nlmsg_free(msg) before returning the
-ENOBUFS error.

This patch can be cherry-picked into D/E/F.
Kernel build OK, boot test OK.
