mac80211: fix station destruction in AP/mesh modes
Unfortunately, commit b22cfcfcae5b, intended to speed up roaming by avoiding the synchronize_rcu() broke AP/mesh modes as it moved some code into that work item that will still call into the driver at a time where it's no longer expected to handle this: after the AP or mesh has been stopped. To fix this problem remove the per-station work struct, maintain a station cleanup list instead and flush this list when stations are flushed. To keep this patch smaller for stable, do this when the stations are flushed (sta_info_flush()). This unfortunately brings back the original roaming delay; I'll fix that again in a separate patch. Also, Ben reported that the original commit could sometimes (with many interfaces) cause long delays when an interface is set down, due to blocking on flush_workqueue(). Since we now maintain the cleanup list, this particular change of the original patch can be reverted.
