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

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

From: Eliad Peller <eliad@wizery.com>

commit 2f617435c3a6fe3f39efb9ae2baa77de2d6c97b8 upstream.

ieee80211_start_roc_work() might add a new roc
to existing roc, and tell cfg80211 it has already
started.

However, this might happen before the roc cookie
was set, resulting in REMAIN_ON_CHANNEL (started)
event with null cookie. Consequently, it can make
wpa_supplicant go out of sync.

Fix it by setting the roc cookie earlier.
