iwl4965: fix skb usage after free
Since commit a120e912eb51e347f36c71b60a1d13af74d30e83 Author: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com> Date: Fri Feb 19 15:47:33 2010 -0800 iwlwifi: sanity check before counting number of tfds can be free we use skb->data after calling ieee80211_tx_status_irqsafe(), which could free skb instantly. On current kernels I do not observe practical problems related with bug, but on 2.6.35.y it cause random system hangs when stressing wireless link, making bisection of other problems impossible.
