Subject: [PATCH] rsi: Fix TX EAPOL packet handling against iwlwifi AP
Date: Thu, 15 Oct 2020 13:16:16 +0200
Message-ID: <20201015111616.429220-1-marex@denx.de> (raw)

In case RSI9116 SDIO WiFi operates in STA mode against Intel 9260 in AP mode,
the association fails. The former is using wpa_supplicant during association,
the later is set up using hostapd:

iwl$ cat hostapd.conf
interface=wlp1s0
ssid=test
country_code=DE
hw_mode=g
channel=1
wpa=2
wpa_passphrase=test
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
iwl$ hostapd -d hostapd.conf

rsi$ wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c <(wpa_passphrase test test)

The problem is that the TX EAPOL data descriptor RSI_DESC_REQUIRE_CFM_TO_HOST
flag and extended descriptor EAPOL4_CONFIRM frame type are not set in case the
AP is iwlwifi, because in that case the TX EAPOL packet is 2 bytes shorter.

The downstream vendor driver has this change in place already [1], however
there is no explanation for it, neither is there any commit history from which
such explanation could be obtained.
