iwlegacy: fix IBSS mode crashes
commit eb85de3f84868ca85703a23617b4079ce79a801e upstream. We should not switch to non-IBSS channels when working in IBSS mode, otherwise there are microcode errors, and after some time system crashes. This bug is only observable when software scan is used in IBSS mode, so should be considered as regression after: commit 0263aa45293838b514b8af674a03faf040991a90 Author: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com> Date: Tue Mar 29 11:24:21 2011 +0200 iwl3945: disable hw scan by default However IBSS mode check, which this patch add again, was removed by commit b2f30e8bdd8ef5f3b5a7ef9146509585a15347d3 Author: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com> Date: Thu Jan 21 07:32:20 2010 -0800 iwlwifi: remove IBSS channel sanity check That commit claim that mac80211 will not use non-IBSS channel in IBSS mode, what definitely is not true. Bug probably should be fixed in mac80211, but that will require more work, so better to apply that patch temporally, and provide proper mac80211 fix latter.
