    mac80211: Fix HT rate control configuration · 4fa00437
    Sujith authored
    Handling HT configuration changes involved setting the channel
    with the new HT parameters and then issuing a rate_update()
    notification to the driver.
    This behavior changed after the off-channel changes. Now, the channel
    is not updated with the new HT params in enable_ht() - instead, it
    is now done when the scan work terminates. This results in the driver
    depending on stale information, defaulting to non-HT mode always.
    Fix this by passing the new channel type to the driver.
