Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 22/58] mac80211: Remove a redundant mutex unlock

From: Andrei Otcheretianski <andrei.otcheretianski@...el.com>

[ Upstream commit 0daa63ed4c6c4302790ce67b7a90c0997ceb7514 ]

The below-mentioned commit changed the code to unlock *inside*
the function, but previously the unlock was *outside*. It failed
to remove the outer unlock, however, leading to double unlock.

Fix this.

Fixes: 33483a6b88e4 ("mac80211: fix missing unlock on error in ieee80211_mark_sta_auth()")
