Subject[patch 014/100] dock: fix dereference after kfree()
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: Dan Carpenter <error27@gmail.com>

upstream commit: f240729832dff3785104d950dad2d3ced4387f6d

dock_remove() calls kfree() on dock_station so we should use
list_for_each_entry_safe() to avoid dereferencing freed memory.

Found by smatch (http://repo.or.cz/w/smatch.git/). Compile tested.
