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

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

From: Jiri Pirko <jiri@resnulli.us>

[ Upstream commit 72df935d985c1575ed44ad2c8c653b28147993fa ]

team_port_enable() adds port to port_hashlist. Reader sees port
in team_get_port_by_index_rcu() and returns it, but
team_get_first_port_txable_rcu() tries to go through port_list, where the
port is not inserted yet -> NULL pointer dereference.
Fix this by reordering port_list and port_hashlist insertion.
Panic is easily triggeable when txing packets and adding/removing port
in a loop.

Introduced by commit 3d249d4c "net: introduce ethernet teaming device"
