Subject: [PATCH] mac80211: clear sta->fast_rx when STA removed from 4-addr VLAN
Date: Fri, 19 Mar 2021 19:48:52 +0530
Message-ID: <1616163532-3881-1-git-send-email-seevalam@codeaurora.org> (raw)

In some race conditions, with more clients and traffic configuration,
below crash is seen when making the interface down. sta->fast_rx wasn't
cleared when STA gets removed from 4-addr AP_VLAN interface. The crash is
due to try accessing 4-addr AP_VLAN interface's net_device (fast_rx->dev)
which has been deleted already.

Resolve this by clearing sta->fast_rx pointer when STA removes
from a 4-addr VLAN.
