[PATCH]: send errno EBADF handling

Jouni et al,

I'm starting with the possibly simplest (if least interesting)
fix of a number of fixes from Atheros... 
please let me know if i'm doing this in the right way to get this into the hostap mainline.

Regarding this fix:
The Atheros engineers were perhaps working around some sort of software bug? 
not clear if you'd get EBADF otherwise. 
Never the less, closing the socket (perhaps no affect if it was bogus fd)
and starting over is a not unreasonable recovery strategy...

Thanks again,
