I know this lib80211 stuff landed on my plate as the maintainer (and the
others are probably more or less copies thereof), but honestly I don't
even have a device I could test this on, and quite possibly never had
(after the old non-mac80211 b43 driver was killed.)

So basically I'll just trust you to be doing the right thing, since you
probably did the same transformation on other code that is better
