SubjectRe: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.4 05/25] cfg80211: Address some corner cases in scan result channel updating
Sasha,

The patch below causes a build warning:
net/wireless/scan.c: In function ‘cfg80211_get_bss_channel’:
net/wireless/scan.c:1015:21: warning: comparison between ‘enum ieee80211_band’ and ‘enum nl80211_band’ [-Wenum-compare]
if (channel->band == NL80211_BAND_2GHZ) {
^~

So I'm going to drop it from the tree now. Feel free to resubmit it if
you want to fix it up :)

thanks,

greg k-h
