           Summary: [regression] "ifconfig wlan0 ether ..." broken after
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Keywords: regression
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: wireless
          Keywords: regression

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[76190]: wlan0: Trying to associate with [...] (SSID='[...]'
freq=2447 MHz)
wpa_supplicant[76190]: wlan0: Authentication with [...] timed out.
wpa_supplicant[76190]: 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.
