In bnx2fc_rcv, it calls skb_share_check(skb,GFP_ATOMIC) to clone
the skb. But if skb_clone() failed, skb_share_check() will free
the skb in the first time and return NULL. Then skb_share_check()
returns NULL and goto err.

Unfortunately, the same skb is freed in the second time in the err.

As kfree_skb() free a null pointer is a safe operation, my patch
put "skb = tmp_skb;" ahead of the "if(!tmp_skb) goto err;". So that
if skb_share_check() failed, skb will be a null pointer.
