[PATCH] ieee80211: don't flood log with errors
Jiri Benc [Wed, 18 Oct 2006 17:34:40 +0000 (19:34 +0200)]
The "ieee80211: Workaround malformed 802.11 frames from AP" patch (see
http://kernel.org/git/?p=linux/kernel/git/linville/wireless-2.6.git;a=commit;h=f09fc44d8c25f22c4d985bb93857338ed02feac6 )
fixes the problem with some buggy APs but also converts debug message into
an error one. This floods the log with errors when you are near such AP (you
get a message for every beacon). This patch reverts the error message back
to the debug one.
