    cfg80211: vastly simplify locking · 5fe231e8
    Johannes Berg authored
    Virtually all code paths in cfg80211 already (need to) hold
    the RTNL. As such, there's little point in having another
    four mutexes for various parts of the code, they just cause
    lock ordering issues (and much of the time, the RTNL and a
    few of the others need thus be held.)
    Simplify all this by getting rid of the extra four mutexes
    and just use the RTNL throughout. Only a few code changes
    were needed to do this and we can get rid of a work struct
    for bonus points.
