FS#3570 - mac80211/ath9k crash

- Device problem occurs on mac80211/ath9k
- Software versions: OpenWrt SNAPSHOT, r15475-c625c821d1
- Steps to reproduce install kmod-ath9k. Oops occurs after association with AP

this is on my alix/x86 board with an Qualcomm Atheros AR922X Wireless Network Adapter

this is possibly related to commit mac80211: replace legacy minstrel with minstrel_ht, improve rate selection

sometimes the device reboots. if the device doesn’t boot, the wifi link is still functional and ping works

15.01.2021 : A task closure has been requested. Reason for request: commit faeaf5a01025edc13b83c90a724d8bff18ab2279 fixed the issue
Alexandros C. Couloumbis commented on 12.01.2021 12:23

the offending patch is 343-mac80211-minstrel_ht-fix-max-probability-rate-select.patch

reverting just that patch, fixes the issue
