Subject[89/90] iwlegacy: 3945: fix hw passive scan on radar channels
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com>

commit 68acc4afb040d98ddfd2cae0de09e2f4e1ee127f upstream.

Patch fix firmware error on "iw dev wlan0 scan passive" for
hardware scanning (with disable_hw_scan=0 module parameter).

iwl3945 0000:03:00.0: Microcode SW error detected. Restarting 0x82000008.

We have disable ability to change passive scanning to active on
particular channel when traffic is detected on that channel. Otherwise
firmware will report error, when we try to do passive scan on radar
channels.
