Please just do this unconditionally directly after
the kfree_skb()

So after this comment has been addressed the end result should
look like this:

	skb_queue_purge(&h5->rel);
	skb_queue_purge(&h5->unrel);
	kfree_skb(h5->rx_skb);
	h5->rx_skb = NULL;

	if (h5->vnd && h5->vnd->close)
		h5->vnd->close(h5);

	if (!hu->serdev)
		kfree(h5);
 
 	return 0;

Regards,

Hans
