Subject: [PATCH] ath9k: Handle txpower changes even when TPC is disabled
commit 968ae2caad0782db5dbbabb560d3cdefd2945d38 upstream.
When TPC is disabled IEEE80211_CONF_CHANGE_POWER event can be handled to
reconfigure HW's maximum txpower.
This fixes 0dBm txpower setting when user attaches to an interface for
the first time with the following scenario:
ieee80211_do_open()
ath9k_add_interface()
ath9k_set_txpower() /* Set TX power with not yet initialized
sc->hw->conf.power_level */
ieee80211_hw_config() /* Iniatilize sc->hw->conf.power_level and
raise IEEE80211_CONF_CHANGE_POWER */
ath9k_config() /* IEEE80211_CONF_CHANGE_POWER is ignored */
This issue can be reproduced with the following:
$ modprobe -r ath9k
$ modprobe ath9k
$ wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /tmp/wpa.conf &
$ iw dev /* Here TX power is either 0 or 3 depending on RF chain */
$ killall wpa_supplicant
$ iw dev /* TX power goes back to calibrated value and subsequent
calls will be fine */
