[PATCH] net: can: fix use-after-free in ems_usb_disconnect

In ems_usb_disconnect() dev pointer, which is
netdev private data, is used after free_candev() call:

	if (dev) {
		unregister_netdev(dev->netdev);
		free_candev(dev->netdev);

		unlink_all_urbs(dev);

		usb_free_urb(dev->intr_urb);

		kfree(dev->intr_in_buffer);
		kfree(dev->tx_msg_buffer);
	}

Fix it by simply moving free_candev() at the end of
the block.
