Revert "nl80211: Remove duplicated check in nl80211_setup_ap()"
This reverts commit 647862eb60c324015ea31293cc052558b5185ca4. The second check of device_ap_sme looks like duplicated, but it isn't actually. The trick is nl80211_create_monitor_interface may change that variable value and the second evaluation may give a different result. This definitely isn't a very clear code, but that change caused a regression for drivers that: 1) Don't report NL80211_ATTR_DEVICE_AP_SME 2) Don't support monitor mode 3) Don't support subscribing for PROBE_REQ and/or ACTION frames like brcmfmac. With such drivers hostapd doesn't start anymore. Signed-off-by: Rafał Miłecki <rafal@milecki.pl>
