[PATCH v2] nl80211: fix nla_nest_start conversion

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg at intel.com>

Dmitry reported that the kernel could no longer parse the
scheduled scan attributes correctly after my patch to use
nla_nest_start/nla_nest_end. The reason is that the wrong
attribute is closed I accidentally made it close the full
scan config instead of just the SSID match set.
