Root cause analysis:
       Device operating mode 8(bluetooth alone), our driver supports multiple modes like 13(WiFi + Bluetooth), WiFi related structures are not been initialized in Bluetooth alone mode(8), dereferencing them in rsi_shutdown function causes crash. In Redpine driver, this NULL check is missed. Hence, Added the fix for the same.

       Added proper NULL check in rsi_shutdown function.

Regression Potential:
        This is a very direct issue, since the driver is getting crashed while reboot. We rebooted multiples times, checked the driver stability. Every thing ran smooth.
