Indeed. And the decrypt path does the same for auth_tag.
But that still means there are two separate problems here, one which
affects the WPA code, and one that only affects the generic CCM
chaining mode (but not the accelerated arm64 implementation)
Unsurprisingly, I would strongly prefer those to be fixed properly
rather than backing out my patch, but I'm happy to help out whichever
solution we reach consensus on.

I will check whether this removes the issue when not using crypto/ccm.ko
