Subject: [PATCH 3.16 13/16] KVM: use after free in kvm_ioctl_create_device()

3.16.64-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@...cle.com>

commit a0f1d21c1ccb1da66629627a74059dd7f5ac9c61 upstream.

We should move the ops->destroy(dev) after the list_del(&dev->vm_node)
so that we don't use "dev" after freeing it.

Fixes: a28ebea2adc4 ("KVM: Protect device ops->create and list_add with kvm->lock")
