mac80211: fix IBSS teardown race

Ignacy reports that sometimes after leaving an IBSS
joining a new one didn't work because there still
were stations on the list. He fixed it by flushing
stations when attempting to join a new IBSS, but
this shouldn't be happening in the first case. When
I looked into it I saw a race condition in teardown
that could cause stations to be added after flush,
and thus cause this situation. Ignacy confirms that
after applying my patch he hasn't seen this happen
