[010/105] mac80211: initialize sta->last_rx in sta_info_alloc

From: Greg KH
Date: Tue Apr 12 2011 - 10:57:45 EST

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


From: Felix Fietkau <nbd@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 8bc8aecdc5e26cfda12dbd6867af4aa67836da6a upstream.

This field is used to determine the inactivity time. When in AP mode,
hostapd uses it for kicking out inactive clients after a while. Without this
patch, hostapd immediately deauthenticates a new client if it checks the
inactivity time before the client sends its first data frame.
