cfg80211: fix null pointer dereference with a custom regulatory request

Once we moved the core regulatory request to the queue and let
the scheduler process it last_request will have been left NULL
until the schedular decides to process the first request. When
this happens and we are loading a driver with a custom regulatory
request like all Atheros drivers we end up with a NULL pointer
dereference. We fix this by checking if the request was a
custom one.
