iwpriv mode fail under Monitor

Reported by: anonymous Assigned to: dyqith
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: madwifi: driver Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:
Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


trying to issue iwpriv ath0 mode 2 under Monitor mode will fail and cause atomic scheduling issue.

I found a temporary workaround by creating the device under STA mode, calling iwpriv ath0 mode 2, then destroying and re-create under monitor.
