Subject[PATCH 5.16 002/186] mac80211_hwsim: initialize ieee80211_tx_info at hw_scan_work
Date
From: JaeMan Park <jaeman@google.com>

[ Upstream commit cacfddf82baf1470e5741edeecb187260868f195 ]

In mac80211_hwsim, the probe_req frame is created and sent while
scanning. It is sent with ieee80211_tx_info which is not initialized.
Uninitialized ieee80211_tx_info can cause problems when using
mac80211_hwsim with wmediumd. wmediumd checks the tx_rates field of
ieee80211_tx_info and doesn't relay probe_req frame to other clients
even if it is a broadcasting message.

Call ieee80211_tx_prepare_skb() to initialize ieee80211_tx_info for
the probe_req that is created by hw_scan_work in mac80211_hwsim.
