Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 205/205] ath9k: Fix a locking bug in ath9k_add_interface()
Date
From: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>

[ Upstream commit 461cf036057477805a8a391e5fd0f5264a5e56a8 ]

We tried to revert commit d9c52fd17cb4 ("ath9k: fix tx99 with monitor
mode interface") but accidentally missed part of the locking change.

The lock has to be held earlier so that we're holding it when we do
"sc->tx99_vif = vif;" and also there in the current code there is a
stray unlock before we have taken the lock.

Fixes: 6df0580be8bc ("ath9k: add back support for using active monitor interfaces for tx99")
