This bug was also reported on the thread where it had been posted originally:
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-wireless/20200621020428.6417d6fb@natsu/

I am waiting for Kalle Valo to accept my patch (v2) which reverts the above
mentioned commit and which looks correct according to him. He wrote that he
would take a closer look at this as soon as he could.

I don't know how busy Kalle is, especially under the current circumstances.
I will remind him on Thursday (one week after his last e-mail). At the latest
I want this to be fixed with the 5.8 release. I think that the patch has to land
in several networking trees before it reaches the mainline kernel, so if I can
do anything to speed things up, just tell me.

Thanks,
Viktor
