Subject[PATCH v2] staging: wlan-ng: silence incorrect type in argument 1 (different address spaces)
Corrected data type for variable data adding __user to make it cleaner and silence the Sparse warning. This is version 2 of patch, version 1 can be found at https://lore.kernel.org/linux-staging/20210420090142.GA4086@ashish-NUC8i5BEH/

Changes from v1: removed type casting of (void __user *) for req->data and corrected type for data to include __user
