Subject: iwlwifi: loosing connection to AP (regression from 5.4.143) (fwd from b.k.o bug 215401)
Date: Fri, 24 Dec 2021 09:24:02 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi, this is your Linux kernel regression tracker speaking.

Forwarding a regression reported in, to ensure
all the interested parties are aware of it, as quite a few (many?)
subsystems don't react at all to reports in that bug tracker.

Feel free to either continue discussing this here or in the ticket, I
don't care.

To be sure this issue doesn't fall through the cracks unnoticed, I'm
also adding it to regzbot, my Linux kernel regression tracking bot:

#regzbot introduced v5.4.143 to v5.4.167
#regzbot title: net: iwlwifi: frequently loosing connection to AP
#regzbot link:

Reminder: when fixing the issue, please link to this mail and the bug
entry with a link tag.

Ciao, Thorsten (wearing his 'Linux kernel regression tracker' hat).

P.S.: As a Linux kernel regression tracker I'm getting a lot of reports
on my table. I can only look briefly into most of them. Unfortunately
therefore I sometimes will get things wrong or miss something important.
I hope that's not the case here; if you think it is, don't hesitate to
tell me about it in a public reply. That's in everyone's interest, as
what I wrote above might be misleading to everyone reading this; any
suggestion I gave thus might sent someone reading this down the wrong
rabbit hole, which none of us wants.

BTW, I have no personal interest in this issue, which is tracked using
regzbot, my Linux kernel regression tracking bot
( I'm only posting
this mail to get things rolling again and hence don't need to be CC on
all further activities wrt to this regression.

Additional information about regzbot:

If you want to know more about regzbot, check out its web-interface, the
getting start guide, and/or the references documentation:

The last two documents will explain how you can interact with regzbot
yourself if your want to.

Hint for reporters: when reporting a regression it's in your interest to
tell #regzbot about it in the report, as that will ensure the regression
gets on the radar of regzbot and the regression tracker. That's in your
interest, as they will make sure the report won't fall through the
cracks unnoticed.

Hint for developers: you normally don't need to care about regzbot once
it's involved. Fix the issue as you normally would, just remember to
include a 'Link:' tag to the report in the commit message, as explained
in Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst
That aspect was recently was made more explicit in commit 1f57bd42b77c:
