    Subject[PATCH][RE-SEND] drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_common.c fix small resource leak
    G'day people,

    Coverity CID: 1356 RESOURCE_LEAK

    I found a very old patch for this that was Acked but did not get applied

    There looks to be a small leak in isdn_writebuf_stub() in isdn_common.c,
    when copy_from_user() returns an un-copied data length (length != 0).
    The below patch should be a minimally invasive fix.
