    LinuxKPI: 802.11: fix re-creation of VAP
    After dbf7691999abe (as indicated in that commit message) EEXISTS
    errors may be seen.  From current investigation that is due to the
    single-VAP support in LinuxKPI 802.11 and the related calls to
    mo_start() and mo_stop() and them being disabled in ic_parent()
    currently.  Calling mo_stop() in lkpi_ic_vap_delete() seems to
    fix the problem and new VAPs (wlan interfaces) can be created again
    after being destroyed.
    Fixes:          dbf7691999abe ("improve lkpi_ic_vap_delete()")
