SubjectRe: kernel BUG in iwl-agn-rs.c:2076, WAS: iwlagn + some accesspoint == hardlock
  Hi,

Problem regarding expected tpt calculation: (at site A)
Tested w/ Linux mypole 2.6.33.3 #21 SMP PREEMPT Tue May 11 11:41:07 CEST 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
and iwl recovery patches applied.

Messages of the type of the last line all over the logs, coming in triples, couples or alone..

Then, there are again these msgs: (site A again)

[29001.505362] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: iwl_tx_agg_start on ra = 00:1a:70:aa:bb:cc tid = 0
[29039.037933] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: iwl_tx_agg_start on ra = 00:1a:70:aa:bb:cc tid = 0
and so on. Associated w/ poor throughput.

Problem regarding the deauths/reconnects (sometimes combined w/ bad throughput):

Tested w/ Linux mypole 2.6.33.3 #21 SMP PREEMPT Tue May 11 11:41:07 CEST 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
and iwl recovery patches applied.

RFKILL switch on, wpa_cli stat showed auth.

First auth: conn failed during https login

[28225.669850] eth1: deauthenticated from 00:40:96:aa:bb:cc (Reason: 2)

next try: no deauth but throughput was: --.-K/s
on abortion of wget and retry: deauth:

Then again, doing nothing:

[28410.448282] eth1: associated

and so on:
[28476.948459] eth1: deauthenticated from 00:40:96:aa:bb:cc (Reason: 2)
[28477.059629] eth1: direct probe to AP 00:40:96:aa:bb:cc (try 1)

[28478.014922] eth1: associated

So, this is a real blocker.

BTW, what is so particular about cisco APs? Again, this is a problem only w/ cisco (different site B,
though):
0:40:96 Cisco Systems, Inc.

Thanks.

Cheers,

Nils
