    Subject[031/107] wireless: Reset beacon_found while updating regulatory
    2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Rajkumar Manoharan <>

    commit aa3d7eef398dd4f29045e9889b817d5161afe03e upstream.

    During the association, the regulatory is updated by country IE
    that reaps the previously found beacons. The impact is that
    after a STA disconnects *or* when for any reason a regulatory
    domain change happens the beacon hint flag is not cleared
    therefore preventing future beacon hints to be learned.
    This is important as a regulatory domain change or a restore
    of regulatory settings would set back the passive scan and no-ibss
    flags on the channel. This is the right place to do this given that
    it covers any regulatory domain change.
