SubjectREGRESSION: v3.2-rcX: iwlagn refuses to associate with my AP's
Hi there,

I recently discovered a regression in the iwlagn driver (works in v3.1
but not in v3.2-rc2... I'm going to continue to bisect, but I thought
I'd give a heads up now). I'm using a Lenovo T410, with the following
wireless card:

[ 11.197410] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: HW Revision ID = 0x35
[ 11.197637] iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0: Detected Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250 AGN, REV=0x84
This doesn't appear to be the same regression as the one reported in the
thread "iwlagn regression in v3.1.5", since the commit which Andrej
pointed at (and which fixed his problem when he reverted it, "iwlwifi:
do not re-configure HT40 after associated") does not appear in v3.2-rc2.

The failure to associate with access points happens at work, with
whatever AP's are in use at the Cambridge Google office. When I tried
v3.2-rc5 at home, I was able to associate with a consumer-grade NetGear
AP, although it was flaky --- that is, it completely failed to associate
initially, but then I tried rebooting and I was eventually able to get
it to work. At work, I was able to reproduce the problem with a
v3.2-rc5 and v3.2-rc2 kernel, but the problem did not manifest itself
with a v3.1 kernel.

One interesting thing is that I'm getting the following WARNING message
triggering in my dmesg logs:

This seems to be happening after the failure to associate with the AP,
so it could be a red herring.
