Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.4 23/32] mac80211: mesh: drop frames appearing to be from us
Date
From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

[ Upstream commit 736a80bbfda709fb3631f5f62056f250a38e5804 ]

If there are multiple mesh stations with the same MAC address,
they will both get confused and start throwing warnings.

Obviously in this case nothing can actually work anyway, so just
drop frames that look like they're from ourselves early on.
