Subject[patch 29/38] mac80211: fix SMPS debugfs locking
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

commit 243e6df4ed919880d079d717641ad699c6530a03 upstream.

The locking with SMPS requests means that the
debugs file should lock the mgd mutex, not the
iflist mutex. Calls to __ieee80211_request_smps()
need to hold that mutex, so add an assertion.

This has always been wrong, but for some reason
never been noticed, probably because the locking
error only happens while unassociated.
