Subject[patch 50/87] mac80211: pid, fix memory corruption
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Jiri Slaby <jirislaby@gmail.com>

commit 6909268dc93ae4b0b8e1ebb4b2fa70b1a47dd347 upstream.

pid doesn't count with some band having more bitrates than the one
associated the first time.
Fix that by counting the maximal available bitrate count and allocate
big enough space.

Secondly, fix touching uninitialized memory which causes panics.
Index sucked from this random memory points to the hell.
The fix is to sort the rates on each band change.
