Subject[PATCH 4.4 072/118] ath9k: fix using sta->drv_priv before initializing it
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Felix Fietkau <nbd@nbd.name>

commit 7711aaf08ad3fc4d0e937eec1de0a63620444ce7 upstream.

A station pointer can be passed to the driver on tx, before it has been
marked as associated. Since ath9k_sta_state was initializing the entry
too late, it resulted in some spurious crashes.

Fixes: df3c6eb34da5 ("ath9k: Use sta_state() callback")
