Subject[PATCH] drbd: fix an invalid memory access caused by incorrect use of list iterator
The bug is here:
idr_remove(&connection->peer_devices, vnr);

If the previous for_each_connection() don't exit early (no goto hit
inside the loop), the iterator 'connection' after the loop will be a
bogus pointer to an invalid structure object containing the HEAD
(&resource->connections). As a result, the use of 'connection' above
will lead to a invalid memory access (including a possible invalid free
as idr_remove could call free_layer).

The original intention should have been to remove all peer_devices,
but the following lines have already done the work. So just remove
this line and the unneeded label, to fix this bug.

Fixes: c06ece6ba6f1b ("drbd: Turn connection->volumes into connection->peer_devices")
