[PATCH 3.17 060/141] mac80211: schedule the actual switch of the station before CSA count 0

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Nov 19 2014 - 15:54:47 EST

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


From: Luciano Coelho <luciano.coelho@xxxxxxxxx>

commit ff1e417c7c239b7abfe70aa90460a77eaafc7f83 upstream.

Due to the time it takes to process the beacon that started the CSA
process, we may be late for the switch if we try to reach exactly
beacon 0. To avoid that, use count - 1 when calculating the switch time.
