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

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

From: dingtianhong <dingtianhong@huawei.com>

[ Upstream commit 2c8a01894a12665d8059fad8f0a293c98a264121 ]

We rename the dummy in modprobe.conf like this:

install dummy0 /sbin/modprobe -o dummy0 --ignore-install dummy
install dummy1 /sbin/modprobe -o dummy1 --ignore-install dummy

We got oops when we run the command:

modprobe dummy0
modprobe dummy1

The reason is that when loading dummy, if __rtnl_link_register() return failed,
the init_module should return and avoid take the wrong path.
