Subject: 3.10, iwlwifi 6200AGN: AP changed bandwidth in a way we can't
 support - disconnect

After upgrading to 3.10.4 and traveling to Europe I'm often suffering
from failures to associate with the following in dmesg:

[   37.351621] wlan0: authenticate with 64:70:02:e6:a6:ba
[   37.364701] wlan0: send auth to 64:70:02:e6:a6:ba (try 1/3)
[   37.366358] wlan0: authenticated
[   37.368543] wlan0: associate with 64:70:02:e6:a6:ba (try 1/3)
[   37.372765] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 64:70:02:e6:a6:ba (capab=0x431 status=0 aid=8)
[   37.380190] wlan0: associated
[   37.438935] wlan0: AP 64:70:02:e6:a6:ba changed bandwidth, new config is 2447 MHz, width 1 (2447/0 MHz)
[   37.438941] wlan0: AP 64:70:02:e6:a6:ba changed bandwidth in a way we can't support - disconnect

I hacked the driver to do

-                  "AP %pM changed bandwidth, new config is %d MHz, width %d (%d/%d MHz)\n",
+                  "AP %pM changed bandwidth, new config is %d MHz, width %d (%d/%d MHz) flags %x/%x\n",
                   ifmgd->bssid, chandef.chan->center_freq, chandef.width,
-                  chandef.center_freq1, chandef.center_freq2);
+                  chandef.center_freq1, chandef.center_freq2, flags, ifmgd->flags);

and

-       if (flags != (ifmgd->flags & (IEEE80211_STA_DISABLE_HT |
+       if ((flags != 0x810 && ifmgd->flags != 0x804) && (
+            flags != (ifmgd->flags & (IEEE80211_STA_DISABLE_HT |

and the result is a working link with

My userland is Debian unstable with 

ii  wpasupplicant    1.0-3+b2      amd64 client support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i)
ii  firmware-iwlwifi 0.36+wheezy.1 all   Binary firmware for Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 and 802.11

using ifup with the WPA configuration in /etc/network/interfaces.
Hardware is a Thinkpad x201s.  Bootup iwlwifi messages are
