Re: [PATCH] wifi: don't remove AP upon link lost event

So the code in link_timeout_cb() only gets run when the wifi device is

AP rejected the reconnect?

You are frighteningly familiar with this code. That is exactly what happens.

This patch will break the AP-out-of-range or AP-turned-off cases; so
instead of your patch, does this one fix your issue?  We're already
tracking whether or not the supplicant can talk to the AP, and the AP
shouldn't be rejecting you during the AUTH phase, just the ASSOC phase.
So with this patch, if when the supplicant reconnects it's able to get
to the ASSOC phase, the AP shouldn't get removed from the list on link

I had assumed that the AP-out-of-range and similar cases would be
handled with a signal from the supplicant saying "BSS removed".
Anyway, your patch works.
