[PATCH] softmac: do shared key auth in workqueue
Daniel Drake [Tue, 11 Jul 2006 22:16:34 +0000 (23:16 +0100)]
Johann Uhrmann reported a bcm43xx crash and Michael Buesch tracked
it down to a problem with the new shared key auth code (recursive
calls into the driver)

This patch (effectively Michael's patch with a couple of small
modifications) solves the problem by sending the authentication
challenge response frame from a workqueue entry.

I also removed a lone \n from the bcm43xx messages relating to
authentication mode - this small change was previously discussed but
not patched in.
