This warning appears only if we apply Ben Hutchings' fix
http://marc.info/?l=linux-wireless&m=132720195012653&w=2
for the bug reported by Cesare Leonardi
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=656813
with cfg80211 warning during device registration
("cfg80211: failed to add phy80211 symlink to netdev!").

We separate device bring up and registration with network stack
to avoid the problem.

After that Ben Hutchings' fix can be applied to fix the bug.
