Subject: Re: Libertas: Association request to the driver failed

Several arrays were read before checking whether the index was within
bounds. ARRAY_SIZE() should be used to determine the size of arrays.

rates->rates has an arraysize of 1, so calling get_common_rates()
with a rates_size of MAX_RATES (14) was causing reads out of bounds.

tmp_size can increment at most to *rates_size * ARRAY_SIZE(lbs_bg_rates),
so that should be the number of elements of tmp[].

A goto can be eliminated: ret was already set upon its declaration.

This is the patch that should be applied after the revert, or do you want a
delta patch?

And does this give your libertas back?

Thanks for testing,
