Bug ID: 208933
Summary: [regression] "ifconfig wlan0 ether ..." broken after
Product: Base System
Severity: Affects Some People
After r297592, wpa_supplicant can no longer associate to an AP
if wlan0's MAC address has been changed with "ifconfig wlan0 ether ...":
wpa_supplicant: wlan0: Trying to associate with [...] (SSID='[...]'
wpa_supplicant: wlan0: Authentication with [...] timed out.
wpa_supplicant: wlan0: CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED bssid=[...]reason=3
After destroying the device and recreating it without changing the
MAC address afterwards, wpa_supplicant can associate with the AP again.
In my case the wlandev is iwn0, but looking at r297592 I suspect that
this is not a device-specific issue.
Reverting r297592 works around the problem.
