3.5.7.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Bing Zhao <bzhao@marvell.com>

commit 8a7d7cbf7b5ff9912ef50b3e94c9ad9f37b1c75f upstream.

A scan request is split into multiple scan commands queued in
scan_pending_q. Each scan command will be sent to firmware and
its response is handlded one after another.

If any error is detected while parsing IE in command response
buffer the remaining data will be ignored and error is returned.

We should check if there is any more scan commands pending in
the queue before returning error. This ensures that we will call
cfg80211_scan_done if this is the last scan command, or send
next scan command in scan_pending_q to firmware.
