dmesg non-working output (8.90 KB, application/octet-stream)

dmesg non-working output

I'm running b43 driver on amd64, I upgraded to the latest git after running 2.6.31-rc9 for some time and found connection not working. Attached there's a log of the b43 driver. Running iwevent showed that it kept cycling through scans but never associating.
Initially I thought it was a problem with b43 itself but trying to upgrade also on the laptop (ath5k on x86) showed the very same problem.
I bisected the commits and found the culprit:
cfg80211: fix SME connect (bbac31f4c0339f6c51afbd0edfb4959df9b53fa9)
Reverting the commit fixes the issues, connection works again.

This should be fixed in 2.6.32-rc1.
