[07/28] ath9k: Fix kernel panic during driver initilization

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Mohammed Shafi Shajakhan <mohammed@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 07445f688218a48bde72316aed9de4fdcc173131 upstream.

all works need to be initialized before ieee80211_register_hw
to prevent mac80211 call backs such as drv_start, drv_config
getting started. otherwise we would queue/cancel works before
initializing them and it leads to kernel panic.
this issue can be recreated with the following script
in Chrome laptops with AR928X cards, with background scan
running (or) Network manager is running

while true
do
sudo modprobe -v ath9k
sleep 3
sudo modprobe -r ath9k
sleep 3
done
