Subject[RFC PATCH 07/13] udp_tunnel: remove the usage of the list iterator after the loop
The usage of node->dev after the loop body is a legitimate type
confusion if the break was not hit. It will compare an undefined
memory location with dev that could potentially be equal. The value
of node->dev in this case could either be a random struct member of the
head element or an out-of-bounds value.

Therefore it is more safe to use the found variable. With the
introduction of speculative safe list iterator this check could be
replaced with if (!node).
