Hi Greg,

Kindly consider/review following net/sched fixes for stable 4.4.y.

This patchset is a follow-up of upstream fix
87b60cfacf9f ("net_sched: fix error recovery at qdisc creation")
cherry-picked on stable 4.4.y.

It fix null pointer dereferences due to uninitialized timer
(qdisc watchdog) or double frees due to ->destroy cleaning up a
second time. Here is the original submission
https://www.mail-archive.com/netdev@vger.kernel.org/msg186003.html

Cherry-picked and build tested on Linux 4.4.151 for ARCH=x86_64.

Regards,
Amit Pundir
