Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------


From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

No upstream commit, the buggy code was removed in 3.5 in commit

mac80211: Fix regression on queue stop during 2040 bss change

which went into 3.2. In the 3.4 cycle, Paul's change

mac80211: Don't let regulatory make us deaf

went in and changed the TX/RX enable logic, but now
the conditions for stopping and restarting the queues
were different so that now, if the AP changes between
20/40 MHz bandwidth, it can happen that we stop but
never restart the queues. This breaks the connection
and the module actually has to be reloaded to get it
back to work.

Fix this by making sure the queues are always started
when they were stopped.
