Possible wireless issue introduced in next-20140930

Hello, everyone.

With next-20140930 my laptop does not work, i.e. after I enter my login
and password in KDM, the entire system becomes unresponsive and I need
to reset it in order to reboot (it does not even show the KDE splash
screen).

It was working pretty fine with next-20140926.

I've also tested with next-20141022 and v3.18-rc1 and no luck.

git bisect pointed me to the commit below [1]. My wireless card is a
RTL8191SEvA [2].

I need your help to troubleshoot this.

Thanks in advance.

rtlwifi: rtl_pci: Start modification for new drivers

Future patches will move the drivers for RTL8192EE and RTL8821AE
from staging to the regular wireless tree. Here, the necessary features
are added to the PCI driver. Other files are touched due to changes
in the various data structs.

Mine is RTL8191SEvB.

I was going to bisect RTL8191SE regression when I got a chance, but you
beat me to it.

Did you confirm that bisection result, ie revert it at HEAD of whicheve=

tree you bisected?

The revert (master) removed some warnings on the way to kaboom here, bu=

the drivers is still toxic. My log follows in case it's the same thing=

I can't go hunting atm, maybe during the weekend if the problem hasn't
evaporate by then.

Hello, everyone.
With next-20140930 my laptop does not work, i.e. after I enter my login
and password in KDM, the entire system becomes unresponsive and I need
to reset it in order to reboot (it does not even show the KDE splash
screen).
It was working pretty fine with next-20140926.
I've also tested with next-20141022 and v3.18-rc1 and no luck.
git bisect pointed me to the commit below [1]. My wireless card is a
RTL8191SEvA [2].
Mine is RTL8191SEvB.
I was going to bisect RTL8191SE regression when I got a chance, but you
beat me to it.

commit 38506ecefab911785d5e1aa5889f6eeb462e0954
Date: Mon Sep 22 09:39:19 2014 -0500
rtlwifi: rtl_pci: Start modification for new drivers
Did you confirm that bisection result, ie revert it at HEAD of whichever
tree you bisected?
The revert (master) removed some warnings on the way to kaboom here, but
the drivers is still toxic. My log follows in case it's the same thing.
I can't go hunting atm, maybe during the weekend if the problem hasn't
evaporate by then.
next-20141023 does not work as well.

With commit 38506ecefab911785d5e1aa5889f6eeb462e0954 reverted, kernel
blows up very early in boot.

Cascardo (CC:) helped me to investigate and it seems that when
rtlpriv->cfg->ops->get_btc_status() is called, it is pointing to a NULL
function.

With the changes below, written by Cascardo, I could get rid of
oops/panic and system booted normally. But there was no wifi network
available (like if wifi card was disabled).

The above patch is correct; however, the one I just submitted will fix several
drivers rather than just this one. For your convenience, I have attached a copy
to this message.
