This is actually far more than I thought initially. A lot of drivers
(b43, b43legacy, rtlwifi, wlxxxx, cw1200) access hw_key outside of tx
op context (tx workers, tx completions). I'm not even sure this is
safe (keys can be freed in the meantime by mac80211 hence invaliding
the pointer inside skb, no?).
