    [PATCH] mac80211: fix virtual interface locking
    
    Florian Lohoff noticed a bug in mac80211: when bringing the
    master interface down while other virtual interfaces are up
    we call dev_close() under a spinlock which is not allowed.
    This patch removes the sub_if_lock used by mac80211 in favour
    of using an RCU list. All list manipulations are already done
    under rtnl so are well protected against each other, and the
    read-side locks we took in the RX and TX code are already in
    RCU read-side critical sections.
