Subject: [PATCH 3.2 161/200] mac80211: clear sequence/fragment number in
 QoS-null frames

3.2.56-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Johannes Berg <>

commit 864a6040f395464003af8dd0d8ca86fed19866d4 upstream.

Avoid leaking data by sending uninitialized memory and setting an
invalid (non-zero) fragment number (the sequence number is ignored
anyway) by setting the seq_ctrl field to zero.

Fixes: 3f52b7e328c5 ("mac80211: mesh power save basics")
Fixes: ce662b44ce22 ("mac80211: send (QoS) Null if no buffered frames")
