Subject: [PATCH 3.4 18/44] mac80211: dont check netdev state for debugfs read/write

3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Arik Nemtsov <arik@...ery.com>

commit 923eaf367206e01f22c97aee22300e332d071916 upstream.

Doing so will lead to an oops for a p2p-dev interface, since it has
no netdev.
