Subject: [PATCH] wireless: drop invalid mesh address extension frames
X-Extended-Stable: 3.5

commit 7dd111e8ee10cc6816669eabcad3334447673236 upstream.

The mesh header can have address extension by a 4th
or a 5th and 6th address, but never both. Drop such
frames in 802.11 -> 802.3 conversion along with any
frames that have the wrong extension.
