Key information in wext.connect is not reset on (re)connect and can hold
data from a previous connection.

Reset key data to avoid that drivers or mac80211 incorrectly detect a
WEP connection request and access the freed or already reused memory.

Additionally optimize cfg80211_sme_connect() and avoid an useless
schedule of conn_work.

Fixes: fffd0934b939 ("cfg80211: rework key operation")

I was first wondering if the dangling scheduled work was part of the
problem. It's kind of pointless to schedule a work and then just do the job
yourself. While it turned out to be benign I still added it to the fix here.

Send out an outdated version. Still does the job but I'll send a v2.
Which will reset more key data and updates the comment.
