Subject[patch 079/123] mac80211: do not transmit frames on unconfigured 4-addr vlan interfaces
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

-----------------

From: Felix Fietkau <nbd@openwrt.org>

commit 3f0e0b220f80075ce15483b20458192c0ac27426 upstream.

If frames are transmitted on 4-addr ap vlan interfaces with no station,
they end up being transmitted unencrypted, even if the ap interface
uses WPA. This patch add some sanity checking to make sure that this
does not happen.
