#3784 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Iteration of BBS list in wlcompat.c

Reported by: matthias@… Owned by: developers
Priority: low Milestone: Bugs Paradise
Component: kernel Version: Kamikaze trunk
Keywords: Cc:


While experimenting with the broadcom driver 4.80 in the old White-Russian tree ( I encountered a problem with the compatibility layer.

Using the patch above results in a kernel oops when triggering "iwlist scan".

The origin of the problem is a wrong wl_bss_info_t structure definition, which is not the case in Kamikaze of course.

However, I do not really understand the arithmetic operations while iterating of the list in wlcompat.c.

Using the attached patch fixes the problem in white russian and seems a lot safer for me, but maybe I am missing something.
