Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.12 136/160] mac80211: Properly WARN on HW scan before restart
Date
From: Ilan Peer <ilan.peer@intel.com>

[ Upstream commit 45daaa1318410794de956fb8e9d06aed2dbb23d0 ]

The following race was possible:

1. The device driver requests HW restart.
2. A scan is requested from user space and is propagated
to the driver. During this flow HW_SCANNING flag is set.
3. The thread that handles the HW restart is scheduled,
and before starting the actual reconfiguration it
checks that HW_SCANNING is not set. The flow does so
without acquiring any lock, and thus the WARN fires.

Fix this by checking that HW_SCANNING is on only after RTNL is
acquired, i.e., user space scan request handling is no longer
in transit.
