2.6.38-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 054ec924944912413e4ee927b8cf02f476d08783 upstream.

The function iwl_is_any_associated() was intended
to check both contexts, but due to an oversight
it only checks the BSS context. This leads to a
problem with scanning since the passive dwell
time isn't restricted appropriately and a scan
that includes passive channels will never finish
if only the PAN context is associated since the
default dwell time of 120ms won't fit into the
normal 100 TU DTIM interval.

Fix the function by using for_each_context() and
also reorganise the other functions a bit to take
advantage of each other making the code easier to
