Johannes pointed on irc that this problem is most likely caused by:

commit f785d83a19bca326f79d127a413e35769afc0105

mac80211: clear sta.drv_priv on reconfiguration

Michal, could you confirm that? If that is the root of the problem, we
need patch for iwlegacy (and iwlwifi) that allocate separate memory for

Thanks
Stanislaw
