Subject: Re: [PATCH] mac80211: Fix TX after monitor interface is converted to managed

This is just paranoia. There's plenty of other BUG_ONs which we use to catch 
bugs caused by drivers doing silly things. We can verify that this condition 
will never occur within the mac80211 layer, so there's no need to have it. 
The only thing this can catch is someone deciding to manually invoke 
dev->uninit, which only the unregister code should be doing.
