    [PATCH] mac80211: remove rtnl locking in ieee80211_sta.c
    
    The rtnl is held in ieee80211_sta.c to prevent some potential
    configuration races with userspace. Unfortunately, it also has the
    potential for deadlocks on interface down. This patch removes the
    rtnl locking to eliminate the deadlocks.
