cfg80211_supported_cipher_suite(&rdev->wiphy, params->cipher) returned
false, and thus it worked for the syzbot reproducer.
Would it be a safer idea to enforce the conditions that I initially put (in
ieee80211_del_key()) directly in cfg80211_validate_key_settings() itself - by
updating max_key_index, and checking accordingly?
