OK, I've fixed the driver to prevent you from enabling monitor mode
while either eth0 or msh0 interfaces are up, and prevent you from
bringing them up while it's in monitor mode.

It would be good to be able to remain connected while we're in monitor
mode though -- surely it can't be _so_ hard to pass the packets up the
stack after processing them? Don't we do that kind of thing for mesh
data frames anyway?
