    mac80211: fix propagation of failed hardware reconfigurations · 24feda00
    Luis R. Rodriguez authored
    mac80211 does not propagate failed hardware reconfiguration
    requests. For suspend and resume this is important due to all
    the possible issues that can come out of the suspend <-> resume
    cycle. Not propagating the error means cfg80211 will assume
    the resume for the device went through fine and mac80211 will
    continue on trying to poke at the hardware, enable timers,
    queue work, and so on for a device which is completley
    The least we can do is to propagate device start issues and
    warn when this occurs upon resume. A side effect of this patch
    is we also now propagate the start errors upon harware
    reconfigurations (non-suspend), but this should also be desirable
    anyway, there is not point in continuing to reconfigure a
    device if mac80211 was unable to start the device.
