Subject: [PATCH] rtlwifi: rtl_usb: Fix missing entry in USB driver's private data
Date: Wed, 21 Dec 2016 11:18:55 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

These drivers need to be able to reference "struct ieee80211_hw" from
the driver's private data, and vice versa. The USB driver failed to
store the address of ieee80211_hw in the private data. Although this
bug has been present for a long time, it was not exposed until
commit ba9f93f82aba ("rtlwifi: Fix enter/exit power_save").

Fixes: ba9f93f82aba ("rtlwifi: Fix enter/exit power_save")
Signed-off-by: Larry Finger <>


This patch needs to be included in 4.10.
