Subject[042/104] nl80211: fix MAC address validation
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Eliad Peller <eliad@wizery.com>

commit e007b857e88097c96c45620bf3b04a4e309053d1 upstream.

MAC addresses have a fixed length. The current
policy allows passing < ETH_ALEN bytes, which
might result in reading beyond the buffer.
