2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

commit b054b747a694927879c94dd11af54d04346aed7d upstream.

When we receive a deauthentication frame before
having successfully associated, we neither print
a message nor abort assocation. The former makes
it hard to debug, while the latter later causes
a warning in cfg80211 when, as will typically be
the case, association timed out.

This warning was reported by many, e.g. in
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15981,
but I couldn't initially pinpoint it. I verified
the fix by hacking hostapd to send a deauth frame
instead of an association response.
