[ 015/127] mac80211: fix AP-mode frame matching

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Jun 05 2013 - 17:35:12 EST

3.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 2b9ccd4e4308272e5aec614b77c5385e7ec2ec90 upstream.

In AP mode, ignore frames with mis-matched BSSID that aren't
multicast or sent to the correct destination. This fixes
reporting public action frames to userspace multiple times
on multiple virtual AP interfaces.
