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

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

From: Cong Wang <amwang@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit ab6c7a0a43c2eaafa57583822b619b22637b49c7 ]

vti module allocates dev->tstats twice: in vti_fb_tunnel_init()
and in vti_tunnel_init(), this lead to a memory leak of
dev->tstats.

Just remove the duplicated operations in vti_fb_tunnel_init().

(candidate for -stable)
