Subject[PATCH 3.16 107/136] nl80211: fix validation of mesh path nexthop
3.16.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Markus Theil <markus.theil@tu-ilmenau.de>

commit 1fab1b89e2e8f01204a9c05a39fd0b6411a48593 upstream.

Mesh path nexthop should be a ethernet address, but current validation
checks against 4 byte integers.

Fixes: 2ec600d672e74 ("nl80211/cfg80211: support for mesh, sta dumping")
