Subject: [PATCH] net: fix secpath kmemleak

commit 3d861f661006606bf159fd6bd973e83dbf21d0f9 upstream.

Mike Kazantsev found 3.5 kernels and beyond were leaking memory,
and tracked the faulty commit to a1c7fff7e18f59e ("net:
netdev_alloc_skb() use build_skb()")

While this commit seems fine, it uncovered a bug introduced
in commit bad43ca8325 ("net: introduce skb_try_coalesce()), in function
kfree_skb_partial()"):

If head is stolen, we free the sk_buff,
without removing references on secpath (skb->sp).

So IPsec + IP defrag/reassembly (using skb coalescing), or
TCP coalescing could leak secpath objects.

Fix this bug by calling skb_release_head_state(skb) to properly
release all possible references to linked objects.
