I think instead we want:

diff --git a/drivers/net/wireless/libertas/rx.c b/drivers/net/wireless/libertas/rx.c
index c7366b0..e446fed 100644

Since that (a) preserves the enter/leave balance when monitor mode is
enabled, and (b) fixes the return code that has been 0 since the driver
was added to the tree in early 2007.  Dave Woodhouse fixed the
process_rxed_802_11_packet() return code for EINVAL case in commit
7bf02c29 from late 2007, and I think the normal codepath should do
EINVAL too.  (though it turns out nothing cares about the return code
anyway, we should still fix it)
