While deleting the elements from the linked list, TAILQ_FOREACH causes
read from the freed pointer. Fixes the issue by using for loop instead
of TAILQ_FOREACH.

Coverity issue: 302867
Fixes: bef50bcb1c47 ("net/softnic: implement start and stop")

TAILQ_FOREACH_SAFE is probably what you want to use here.

From man page:

     The macros TAILQ_FOREACH, TAILQ_FOREACH_REVERSE, TAILQ_FOREACH_SAFE, and
     TAILQ_FOREACH_REVERSE_SAFE traverse the tail queue referenced by head in
     the forward or reverse direction direction, assigning each element in
     turn to var.

     The SAFE versions use tmp to hold the next element, so var may be freed
     or removed from the list.

The TAILQ_FOREACH_SAFE() macro handles exactly this case. Although it is not
in the linux TAILQ header, DPDK provides it in rte_tailq.h:

http://git.dpdk.org/dpdk/tree/lib/librte_eal/common/include/rte_tailq.h#n130

I think it is cleaner to use the MACRO instead of manually doing the loop,
linked-list iter + delete is error prone enough already :)

Macro lessens the confusion as well  :)  thanks, Harry!
