mac80211: fix work removal on deauth request
When deauth is requested while an auth or assoc work item is in progress, we currently delete it without regard for any state it might need to clean up. Fix it by cleaning up for those items. In the case Pontus found, the problem manifested itself as such: authenticate with 00:23:69:aa:dd:7b (try 1) authenticated failed to insert Dummy STA entry for the AP (error -17) deauthenticating from 00:23:69:aa:dd:7b by local choice (reason=2) It could also happen differently if the driver uses the tx_sync callback. We can't just call the ->done() method of the work items because that will lock up due to the locking in cfg80211. This fix isn't very clean, but that seems acceptable since I have patches pending to remove this code completely.
