klist: fix starting point removed bug in klist iterators

The starting node for a klist iteration is often passed in from
somewhere way above the klist infrastructure, meaning there's no
guarantee the node is still on the list.  We've seen this in SCSI where
we use bus_find_device() to iterate through a list of devices.  In the
face of heavy hotplug activity, the last device returned by
bus_find_device() can be removed before the next call.  This leads to

And an eventual crash. It can actually occur in any hotplug system
which has a device finder and a starting device.

We can fix this globally by making sure the starting node for
klist_iter_init_node() is actually a member of the list before using it
(and by starting from the beginning if it isn't).
