mwifiex: fix crash during simultaneous scan and connect
If 'iw connect' command is fired when driver is already busy in serving 'iw scan' command, ssid specific scan operation for connect is skipped. In this case cmd wait queue handler gets called with no command in queue (i.e. adapter->cmd_queued = NULL). This patch adds a NULL check in mwifiex_wait_queue_complete() routine to fix crash observed during simultaneous scan and assoc operations.
