FS#1079 - Wifi 5GHz & Kernel 4.4 vs 4.9 [Netgear R8000/bcm53xx]

Tested on Netgear R8000/bcm53xx
LEDE Reboot SNAPSHOT r5099-5fff2f4 / LuCI Master (git-17.289.64212-462779c)

Since Kernel 4.9, the Wifi 5GHz (radio 0 and radio 2) does not work: visible, but unable to connect or disconnected after few seconds (unable to receive IP at all).

Today, I tested to compile the build but with the previous kernel 4.4, all Wifi 5GHz work.

The LEDE config (on the device) are strictly identical between both tests.

Attached all files about both build.

In the meantime bcm53xx was switched to kernel 4.14. Please test if the issue persists.

I switched to 4.14 this week, so I will test it in next days.

I did some test to day, it is stable.
I will continue during 2-3 days, if it's ok, I will close this issue.

All continue to work well.
