3.8.13.4 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 284041ef21fdf2e0d216ab6b787bc9072b4eb58a ]

commit 0178b695fd6b4 ("ipv6: Copy cork options in ip6_append_data")
added some code duplication and bad error recovery, leading to potential
crash in ip6_cork_release() as kfree() could be called with garbage.

use kzalloc() to make sure this wont happen.
