Was going to test this; but it doesn't apply to either libertas-2.6 or
to wireless-2.6/everything.  Which branch is it a diff from?

Also, should we still be targeting libertas-2.6 or just go straight to
Linville since Woodhouse seems to have gone quiet for a bit?  If he has,
we should probably get Linville to pull the latest from libertas-2.6
since there's a few good cleanups in there (the should_deauth_infra()
return value for one).  Then send further patches to wireless-2.6 until
woodhouse shows up again.
