Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449605
Add IW_ENCODE_TEMP patch to help airo with 802.1x WiFi connections
Last modified: 2009-01-20 15:33:38 EST
Backport the IW_ENCODE_TEMP patch to RHEL 5's wpa_supplicant package. It's been
in Fedora since F7 so it's pretty well tested, and it does solve the issue of
the airo driver not being able to connect to 802.1x-enabled WiFi access points.
Very easy to QA as well, and the patch has no impact on drivers other than airo,
because only airo needs/implements the IW_ENCODE_TEMP functionality.
