Subject[055/289] mac80211: use correct station flags lock
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

commit f5521b13880f4f4f612e1d20dd4f565122d16e04 upstream.

This code is modifying the station flags, and
as such should hold the flags lock so it can
do so atomically vs. other flags modifications
and readers. This issue was introduced when
this code was added in eccb8e8f, as it used
the wrong lock (thus not fixing the race that
was previously documented in a comment.)
