Subject[18/34] iwlwifi: fix scan abort
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com>

commit d28232b461b8d54b09e59325dbac8b0913ce2049 upstream.

Fix possible double priv->mutex lock introduced by commit
a69b03e941abae00380fc6bc1877fb797a1b31e6
"iwlwifi: cancel scan watchdog in iwl_bg_abort_scan" .
We can not call cancel_delayed_work_sync(&priv->scan_check) with
priv->mutex locked because workqueue function iwl_bg_scan_check()
take that lock internally.

We do not need to synchronize when canceling priv->scan_check work.
We can avoid races (sending double abort command or send no
command at all) using STATUS_SCAN_ABORT bit. Moreover
current iwl_bg_scan_check() code seems to be broken, as
we should not send abort commands when currently aborting.
