Subject[PATCH 4.14 256/496] iwlwifi: mvm: fix error checking for multi/broadcast sta
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Johannes Berg <>

[ Upstream commit 75fd4fec3e4c43b131c7c4958adb3ab9f1665513 ]

The earlier patch called the station add functions but didn't
assign their return value to the ret variable, so that the
checks for it were meaningless. Fix that.

Found by smatch:

.../mac80211.c:2560 iwl_mvm_start_ap_ibss() warn: we tested 'ret' before and it was 'false'
.../mac80211.c:2563 iwl_mvm_start_ap_ibss() warn: we tested 'ret' before and it was 'false'
