iwlwifi: mvm: refuse connection to APs with BI < 16
Johannes Berg [Thu, 4 Jul 2013 13:55:29 +0000 (15:55 +0200)]
commit 48bc13072109ea58465542aa1ee31b4e1065468a upstream.

Due to a firmware bug, it crashes when the beacon interval
is smaller than 16. Avoid this by refusing the station state
change creating the AP station, causing mac80211 to abandon
the attempt to connect to the AP, and eventually wpa_s to
blacklist it.
