Description Need Real Name 2008-07-29 11:21:47 EDT
Description of problem:
The wireless support in the 2.6.26 git releases and the 2.6.27 rc releases is
broken due to a latent bug that has been exposed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.27-0.186.rc0.git15.fc10

How reproducible:
Always. Drivers which use mac80211 like ath5k and ath9k will have
timeouts when associating with the AP.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install kernel-2.6.27-0.186.rc0.git15.fc10 and use the ath5k or ath9k
wireless drivers.
  
Actual results:
Expected normal wireless connections.

Expected results:
Connections only survive a couple minutes before timeout errors with AP
associations occur.
