    Subject[065/151] mac80211: Fixed bug in mesh portal paths
    2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

    From: Javier Cardona <javier@cozybit.com>

    commit 5d618cb81aeea19879975cd1f9a1e707694dfd7c upstream.

    Paths to mesh portals were being timed out immediately after each use in
    intermediate forwarding nodes. mppath->exp_time is set to the expiration time
    so assigning it to jiffies was marking the path as expired.
