I think the beacon come from hostapd (or any userspace application with
the necessary permissions). Indeed, it could be corrupted.

I have noticed that WLAN_EID_RSN is parsed at multiple places in the
kernel and I haven't seen any particular check :( (and WLAN_EID_RSN is
probably not the only dangerous IE).

Anyway, I am going to add a few checks on values of ptr.
