Thanks for the report. To be sure the issue doesn't fall through the
cracks unnoticed, I'm adding it to regzbot, the Linux kernel regression
tracking bot:

#regzbot ^introduced c222f77fd
#regzbot title wifi: mt76: mt7921: DHCPv4 exchange broke
#regzbot ignore-activity

This isn't a regression? This issue or a fix for it are already
discussed somewhere else? It was fixed already? You want to clarify when
the regression started to happen? Or point out I got the title or
something else totally wrong? Then just reply and tell me -- ideally
while also telling regzbot about it, as explained by the page listed in
the footer of this mail.

Developers: When fixing the issue, remember to add 'Link:' tags pointing
to the report (the parent of this mail). See page linked in footer for
details.

Deren Wu asked me privately if I'm using the latest firmware, and I
wasn't. I updated the firmware and now the problem doesn't happen.
The firmware where the problem happens is
mediatek/WIFI_RAM_CODE_MT7922_1.bin from the linux-firmware commit
e2d11744ef (file size 826740, md5sum 8ff1bdc0f54f255bb2a1d6825781506b),
the one where the problem doesn't happen is from the commit 6569484e6b
(file size 827124, md5sum 14c08c8298b639ee52409b5e9711a083). I haven't
tried the version committed between these ones.
Not sure if this should be reported to regzbot and if there are any
further actions needed by the kernel maintainers.

FWIW, just checked: that commit is from 2023-05-15, so quite recent.

Well, to quote the first sentence from
Documentation/driver-api/firmware/firmware-usage-guidelines.rst

```Users switching to a newer kernel should *not* have to install newer
firmware files to keep their hardware working.```

IOW: the problem you ran into should not happen. This afaics makes it a
regression that needs to be addressed -- at least if it's something that
is likely to hit others users as well. But I'd guess that's the case.

Well, until now I didn't see any other report about a problem like this.
Maybe things work better for others with that hardware – in that case it
might be something not worth making a fuzz about. But I'll wait another
week or two before I remove this from the tracking.

Yeah, this is bad. mt76 (or any other wireless driver) must not require
a new firmware whenever upgrading the kernel. Instead the old and new
firmware should coexist (for example have firmware-2.bin for the new
version and firmware.bin for the old version). Then mt76 should first
try loading the new firmware (eg. firmware-2.bin) and then try the old
one (eg. firmware.bin).

Should we revert commit c222f77fd4 or how to solve this?

@Andrey: IIUC the issue, you do not receive any DHCP offer/reply when
you try to connect to the OpenWrt 5GHz AP, right? If so, are you able to
provide a traffic sniff obtained from a monitor interface running on a node
connected to the same SSID when the MT7922 client is trying to connect?
It would be very helpful if you can run this test with encryption enabled
and disabled. Thanks in advance.

I had hoped someone would rely with an opinion on this, but nobody did
(and the reporter didn't reply to Lorenzo inquiry). So if you asked for
mine:

Hmmm. Tricky. This was the only such report I noticed. Giving that and
the risk that a revert might cause regressions on its own, I guess it
might be better to leave everything as it is for now - and re-evaluate
the situation in case more problems show up.

Hi, Thorsten here, the Linux kernel's regression tracker. Top-posting
for once, to make this easily accessible to everyone.

FWIW, I'm dropping this from the list of tracked regressions now. This
wasn't handled as it IMHO should be, but whatever, at this point it
afaics is best to leave things as they are, unless more reports of this
kind show up.

Thx everyone.

#regzbot inconclusive: not fixed, but fixing likely would cause more
trouble than it's worth, unless more people complain
