I think I know whats happening (Jussi CCed). That commit introduced
a qdisc_skb_cb, which conflicts with the mac80211 usage of skb->cb.
mac80211 seems to expect the CB to survive the qdisc layer, which
is wrong. One possibility to fix this (or just test my theory)
would be to make sure they don't clash by adding the struct
ieee80211_tx_info to qdisc_skb_cb->data. Something like this patch.
