Subject: [Regression 5.9][Bisected 1df2bdba528b] Wifi GTK rekeying fails:
 Sending of EAPol packages broken


after upgrading to linux-5.9.0 I noticed that my wifi got disassociated 
every 10 minutes when access point triggered rekeying for GTK.

This happened with iwd but not with wpa_supplicant. iwd was logging

> wlan0: disassociated from aa:bb:cc:dd:ap:01 (Reason: 2=PREV_AUTH_NOT_VALID)
> wlan0: authenticate with aa:bb:cc:dd:ap:01
> wlan0: send auth to aa:bb:cc:dd:ap:01 (try 1/3)
> wlan0: authenticated
> wlan0: associate with aa:bb:cc:dd:ap:01 (try 1/3)
> wlan0: RX AssocResp from aa:bb:cc:dd:ap:01 (capab=0x1511 status=0 aid=1)
> wlan0: associated

With the help of iwd developers (many thanks!) we noticed that EAPoL 
packets didn't reach access point. As workaround, using the legacy way 
to send EAPoL packets by setting

> [General]
> ControlPortOverNL80211=False

in iwd's main.conf, worked. So it became clear that this is a kernel 

I now finished bisecting the kernel and 
1df2bdba528b5a7a30f1b107b6924aa79af5e00e [1] is the first bad commit:
