Revert "wlcore: Add missing PM call for wlcore_cmd_wait_for_event_or_timeout()"
This reverts commit 3fdd3464 which was upstream commit 4ec7cece87b3ed21ffcd407c62fb2f151a366bc1. From Dietmar May's report on the stable mailing list (https://www.spinics.net/lists/stable/msg272201.html): > I've run into some problems which appear due to (a) recent patch(es) on > the wlcore wifi driver. > > 4.4.160 - commit 3fdd3464 > 4.9.131 - commit afeeecc7 > > Earlier versions (4.9.130 and 4.4.159 - tested back to 4.4.49) do not > exhibit this problem. It is still present in 4.9.141. > > master as of 4.20.0-rc4 does not exhibit this problem. > > Basically, during client association when in AP mode (running hostapd), > handshake may or may not complete following a noticeable delay. If > successful, then the driver fails consistently in warn_slowpath_null > during disassociation. If unsuccessful, the wifi client attempts multiple > times, sometimes failing repeatedly. I've had clients unable to connect > for 3-5 minutes during testing, with the syslog filled with dozens of > backtraces. syslog details are below. > > I'm working on an embedded device with a TI 3352 ARM processor and a > murata wl1271 module in sdio mode.

Let's apply > > this separately though in case others are hitting this issue./ > We're not doing anything explicit with power management. The device is an > IoT edge gateway with battery backup, normally running on wall power. The > battery is currently used solely to shut down the system cleanly to avoid > filesystem corruption. > > The device tree is configured to keep power in suspend; but the device > should never suspend, so in our case, there is no need to call > wl1271_ps_elp_wakeup() or wl1271_ps_elp_sleep(), as occurs in the patch.
