Subject: [PATCH] wireless: hostap: Fix a use after free in hostap_80211_rx

Function hostap_80211_rx() calls prism2_rx_80211(..,skb,..). In
prism2_rx_80211, i found that the skb could be freed by dev_kfree_skb_any(skb)
and return 0. Also could be freed by netif_rx(skb) when netif_rx return
NET_RX_DROP.

But after called the prism2_rx_80211(..,skb,..), the skb is used by skb->len.

As the new skb->len is returned by prism2_rx_80211(), my patch uses a variable
len to repalce skb->len. According to another useage of prism2_rx_80211 in
monitor_rx().
