commit 1140afa862842ac3e56678693050760edc4ecde9 upstream.

    mac80211: consolidate MIC failure report handling

is possible to that we dereference rx->key == NULL when driver set
RX_FLAG_MMIC_STRIPPED and not RX_FLAG_IV_STRIPPED and we are in
promiscuous mode. This happen with rt73usb and rt61pci at least.

Before the commit we always check rx->key against NULL, so I assume
fix should be done in mac80211 (also mic_fail path has similar check).
