Subject[2.6.20.17 review 29/58] softmac: Fix ESSID problem
Victor Porton reported that the SoftMAC layer had random problem when setting the ESSID :
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8686 After investigation, it turned out to be
worse, the SoftMAC layer is left in an inconsistent state. The fix is pretty trivial.
