wl1271: Check vif for NULL when indicating beacon-loss
Juuso Oikarinen [Fri, 11 Dec 2009 13:41:09 +0000 (15:41 +0200)]
Because the interface is started and the vif are created and destroyed
separately, there is a slim possibility beacon-loss indications occur while
there is no vif - causing a kernel-oops unless checked.

Add checking for the vif.
