Sorry, I just saw this. My apologies. The fixup is valid but I'm
trying to understand why it is needed.
ieee80211_vif_is_mesh(&sdata->vif) compiles to 'false' when
CONFIG_MAC80211_MESH is not defined... wouldn't the compiler remove
that dead code? (Obviously it did not...)

Anyway, given that this is necessary, it's probably cleaner to extend
the #ifdef block to the entire body of the outer if as follows:
