Subject: [PATCH 3.13 075/149] firewire: net: fix use after free

3.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Stefan Richter <stefanr@...6.in-berlin.de>

commit 8987583366ae9e03c306c2b7d73bdb952df1d08d upstream.

Commit 8408dc1c14c1 "firewire: net: use dev_printk API" introduced a
use-after-free in a failure path.  fwnet_transmit_packet_failed(ptask)
may free ptask, then the dev_err() call dereferenced it.  The fix is
straightforward; simply reorder the two calls.
