Subject: [PATCH] iwlwifi3945/4965 - fix rate control algo reference leak

Hi Thomas,

could you test this one please.

Subject: [PATCH] iwlwifi3945/4965 - fix rate control algo reference leak

This patch does fix rate control algo reference leak in case
if network device has been failed to register. In this case
special flag priv->mac80211_registered is not set and the
rate algo reference is not freeing on module unload. That leads
to OOPs in further ieee80211 rate register/unregister procedure
(by any callee).

It should fix the bug #9470
