SubjectRe: REGRESSION: v3.2-rcX: iwlagn refuses to associate with my AP's

I think this is. It's interesting though that it is deauthenticating --
is there anything in the log before? But since you bisected it to the TX
sync commit, I'd say let's try the below patch. You might have to adjust
the iwl-mac80211.c file to iwl-agn.c, I'm not entirely sure what version
has the moved code.

Please let me know -- this commit is probably the right thing to do
until we get rid of tx_sync completely.

Thanks,
Johannes
