mac80211: fix for incorrect sequence number on hostapd injected frames
When hostapd injects a frame, e.g. an authentication or association response, mac80211 looks for a suitable access point virtual interface to associate the frame with based on its source address. This makes it possible e.g. to correctly assign sequence numbers to the frames. A small typo in the ethernet address comparison statement caused a failure to find a suitable ap interface. Sequence numbers on such frames where therefore left unassigned causing some clients (especially windows-based 11b/g clients) to reject them and fail to authenticate or associate with the access point. This patch fixes the typo in the address comparison statement.
