Hmm... I just applied it cleanly on top of wireless-drivers-next/master:

973a99be7943 (HEAD) qtnfmac: replace qtnf_cmd_acl_data_size() with struct_size()
38bb0baea310 (wireless-drivers-next/master) rtlwifi: move spin_lock_bh to spin_lock in tasklet
60209d482b97 rtlwifi: fix potential NULL pointer dereference
765976285a8c rtlwifi: fix a potential NULL pointer dereference

Do you see any issues with this?

Thanks
