    mac80211: inform userspace of probe/auth/assoc timeout · 4a68ec53
    Johannes Berg authored
    I noticed that when for some reason [1] the probe or auth times
    out, wpa_supplicant doesn't realise this and only tries the next
    AP when it runs into its own timeout, which is ten seconds, and
    that's quite long. Fix this by making mac80211 notify userspace
    that it didn't associate.
    [1] my wrt350n in mixed B/G/HT mode often runs into this, maybe
    it's because one of the antennas is broken off and for whatever
    reason it decides to use that antenna to transmit the response
    frames (auth, probe); I do see beacons fine so it's not totally
    broken. Works fine in pure-G mode.
