550-ath9k_entropy_from_adc.patch causes databus errors

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Tested on WDR4300 with configured AR9340 on AHB (the second device on PCI bus seems work) with current trunk.

The crash happens most of the time when running reconfiguration of the wifi device using "wifi". Easiest thing is to remove the "disable" for this device in /etc/config/wireless and running "while true; do wifi; done". After a short period of time the device prints the "data bus error" and reboots.

The crash happens at the line


Removing the patch 550-ath9k_entropy_from_adc.patch fixes the problem for me. It also works to check for AR_SREV_9340(ah) in ath_get_initial_entropy + ath_ani_calibrate and only run ath9k_hw_get_adc_entropy + add_device_randomness when it is not an AR9340.

Other devices (other than AR9340) may also be affected.
