[PATCH 1/2] net/macb: fix misplaced call of free_netdev() in macb_remove()

From: Cyrille Pitchen
Date: Mon Dec 15 2014 - 09:14:06 EST

fix a bug introduced by the multiqueue support patch:
"net/macb: add TX multiqueue support for gem"

the "bp" pointer to the netdev private data was dereferenced and used after the
associated memory had been freed by calling free_netdev().
