mac80211: unset SDATA_STATE_OFFCHANNEL when cancelling a scan
For client STA interfaces, ieee80211_do_stop unsets the relevant interface's SDATA_STATE_RUNNING state bit prior to cancelling an interrupted scan. When ieee80211_offchannel_return is invoked as part of cancelling the scan, it doesn't bother unsetting the SDATA_STATE_OFFCHANNEL bit because it sees that the interface is down. Normally this doesn't matter because when the client STA interface is brought back up, it will probably issue a scan. But in some cases (e.g., the user changes the interface type while it is down), the SDATA_STATE_OFFCHANNEL bit will remain set. This prevents the interface queues from being started. So we cancel the scan before unsetting the SDATA_STATE_RUNNING bit. Signed-off-by: Brian Cavagnolo <brian@cozybit.com> Signed-off-by: John W. Linville <linville@tuxdriver.com>
