kernel 2.4: simple iwconfig show oops

Reported by: Assigned to:
Priority: minor Milestone: version 0.9.5
Component: madwifi: HAL Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:
Patch is attached: 1 Pending:


The current trunk/r3760 has a change in if_ath_pci.c:init_ath_pci() which oopses on linux-2.4. After modprobe ath_pci, the first iwconfig shows a segv. Needed to restore the old behavior with the attached patch.
