Subject[PATCH 4.1 55/78] mac80211: fix invalid read in minstrel_sort_best_tp_rates()
Date
4.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Adrien Schildknecht <adrien+dev@schischi.me>

commit f5eeb5fa191fd7b634cbc4883ac58f3b2184dbc5 upstream.

At the last iteration of the loop, j may equal zero and thus
tp_list[j - 1] causes an invalid read.
Change the logic of the loop so that j - 1 is always >= 0.
