Subject[PATCH] [26/223] mac80211: delete AddBA response timer
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

commit 44271488b91c9eecf249e075a1805dd887e222d2 upstream.

We never delete the addBA response timer, which
is typically fine, but if the station it belongs
to is deleted very quickly after starting the BA
session, before the peer had a chance to reply,
the timer may fire after the station struct has
been freed already. Therefore, we need to delete
the timer in a suitable spot -- best when the
session is being stopped (which will happen even
then) in which case the delete will be a no-op
most of the time.

I've reproduced the scenario and tested the fix.

This fixes the crash reported at
http://mid.gmane.org/4CAB6F96.6090701@candelatech.com
