Subject: [PATCH 2/2] cfg80211: fix wireless handlers assignment

The point we assign dev->wireless_handlers at is too
late, we need to do that before netdev_register_kobject()
gets called, so use the new NETDEV_PRE_INIT notifier.
The result of adding wireless_handlers too late is the
disappearance of /sys/class/net/wlan0/wireless which a
bunch of distro scripts still require.

This should fix the regression Hugh reported (of course requires the
other patch which unfortunately I forgot to CC you, Hugh, I'll send you
a copy in private).
