    Subject[patch 58/58] ath9k: Fix FIF_BCN_PRBRESP_PROMISC handling
    2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

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

    From: Luis R. Rodriguez <lrodriguez@Atheros.com>

    This is a port of commit
    91ed19f5f66a7fe544f0ec385e981f43491d1d5a
    for 2.6.29.

    Without this after scanning your device will set
    the association ID to something bogus and what is
    being reported is multicast/broadcast frame are not
    being received. For details see this bug report:

    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=498502

    >From the original commit:

    So that a new created IBSS network
    doesn't break on the first scan.

    It seems to Sujith and me that this
    stupid code unnecessary, too.

    So remove it...
