Adrian - can you have a look at this?
Comment 2 Adrian Chadd freebsd_committer 2016-04-14 19:32:32 UTC
The real problem(tm) is that we don't have a nice framework for handling device lifecycle when it comes to unplug events like this.

  net80211: do not reschedule scan_curchan_task() if the scan was canceled.

  This should fix possible use-after-free in the scheduled task.
