cfg80211: check for and abort dangling scan requests



If you trigger a scan request on an interface and then
take it down, or rmmod the module or unplug the device
the driver might "forget" to cancel the scan request.
That is a bug in the driver, but the current behaviour
is that we just hang endlessly waiting for the netdev
refcount to become 0 which it never will. To improve
robustness, check for this situation in cfg80211, warn
about it and clean up behind the driver. I don't just
clean up silently because it's likely that the driver
also has some internal state it has now leaked.

Additionally, this fixes a locking bug, clearing the
scan_req pointer should be done under the rdev lock.

Finally, we also need to _wait_ for the scan work and
not just abort it since it might be pending and wanting
to do a cleanup.
