Subject[10/53] mac80211: fix NULL dereference in radiotap code
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

commit f8d1ccf15568268c76f913b45ecdd33134387f1a upstream.

When receiving failed PLCP frames is enabled, there
won't be a rate pointer when we add the radiotap
header and thus the kernel will crash. Fix this by
not assuming the rate pointer is always valid. It's
still always valid for frames that have good PLCP
though, and that is checked & enforced.

This was broken by my
commit fc88518916793af8ad6a02e05ff254d95c36d875

mac80211: don't check rates on PLCP error frames

where I removed the check in this case but didn't
take into account that the rate info would be used.
