mac80211: fix ibss scanning
Do not scan on no-IBSS and disabled channels in IBSS mode. Doing this can trigger Microcode errors on iwlwifi and iwlegacy drivers. Also rename ieee80211_request_internal_scan() function since it is only used in IBSS mode and simplify calling it from ieee80211_sta_find_ibss(). This patch should address: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=883414 https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49411 Reported-by: Jesse Kahtava <jesse_kahtava@f-m.fm> Reported-by: Mikko Rapeli <mikko.rapeli@iki.fi> Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org Signed-off-by: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>
