Subject: [PATCH 4.4 09/50] Revert "ath10k: send (re)assoc peer command when NSS changed"
Date: Fri, 27 Apr 2018 15:58:11 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180427135656.260363398@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180427135655.623669681@linuxfoundation.org>

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Karthikeyan Periyasamy <periyasa@codeaurora.org>

commit 55cc11da69895a680940c1733caabc37be685f5e upstream.

This reverts commit 55884c045d31a29cf69db8332d1064a1b61dd159.

When Ath10k is in AP mode and an unassociated STA sends a VHT action frame
(Operating Mode Notification for the NSS change) periodically to AP this causes
ath10k to call ath10k_station_assoc() which sends WMI_PEER_ASSOC_CMDID during
NSS update. Over the time (with a certain client it can happen within 15 mins
when there are over 500 of these VHT action frames) continuous calls of
WMI_PEER_ASSOC_CMDID cause firmware to assert due to resource exhaust.

To my knowledge setting WMI_PEER_NSS peer param itself enough to handle NSS
updates and no need to call ath10k_station_assoc(). So revert the original
commit from 2014 as it's unclear why the change was really needed.
Now the firmware assert doesn't happen anymore.

Issue observed in QCA9984 platform with firmware version:10.4-3.5.3-00053.
This Change tested in QCA9984 with firmware version: 10.4-3.5.3-00053 and
QCA988x platform with firmware version: 10.2.4-1.0-00036.
