Subject[13/53] cfg80211: fix bug on regulatory core exit on access to last_request
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: "Luis R. Rodriguez" <mcgrof@qca.qualcomm.com>

commit 58ebacc66bd11be2327edcefc79de94bd6f5bb4a upstream.

Commit 4d9d88d1 by Scott James Remnant <keybuk@google.com> added
the .uevent() callback for the regulatory device used during
the platform device registration. The change was done to account
for queuing up udev change requests through udevadm triggers.
The change also meant that upon regulatory core exit we will now
send a uevent() but the uevent() callback, reg_device_uevent(),
also accessed last_request. Right before commiting device suicide
we free'd last_request but never set it to NULL so
platform_device_unregister() would lead to bogus kernel paging
request. Fix this and also simply supress uevents right before
we commit suicide as they are pointless.

This fix is required for kernels >= v2.6.39

$ git describe --contains 4d9d88d1
v2.6.39-rc1~468^2~25^2^2~21

The impact of not having this present is that a bogus paging
access may occur (only read) upon cfg80211 unload time. You
may also get this BUG complaint below. Although Johannes
could not reproduce the issue this fix is theoretically correct.
