mac80211: fix kernel panic in IBSS due to a regression

kernel panic occurs when we create an IBSS mode and leave it for
sometime without any joiner and this is introduced by the
commit ec2b774e7c91094d8c00de579646f1162b87b01e where we don't
put proper braces for 'list_for_each_entry_safe' and we pass an
invalid 'sta' pointer to __sta_info_destroy

EIP is at __list_add+0xe/0xa0
