The first call of skb_put_padto() will free up the SKB on error, but we
return NULL which tells dsa_slave_xmit() that the original SKB should be
freed so this would lead to a double free here.

The second skb_put_padto() already frees the passed sk_buff reference
upon error, so calling kfree_skb() on it again is not necessary.

Detected by CoverityScan, CID#1416687 ("USE_AFTER_FREE")

Fixes: e71cb9e00922 ("net: dsa: ksz: fix skb freeing")
