Subject[039/165] mac80211: fix a few RCU issues
2.6.39-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
Content-Length: 1366
Lines: 47
From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

commit a3836e02ba4c50db958d32d710b226f2408623dc upstream.

A few configuration functions correctly do
rcu_read_lock() but don't correctly reference
some pointers protected by RCU. Fix that.
