This gave me the idea of trying to use cfg80211_validate_key_settings()
directly in ieee80211_del_key(). I did try that out, tested it, and this bug
doesn't seem to be getting triggered anymore.
If this is okay, then I can send in a v2 soon. :)

If there is any reason that I'm missing as to why cfg80211_validate_key_settings()
cannot be used in this context, please let me know.
