[Bug 1305406] Re: [8086:4238] iwlwifi: fail to flush all tx fifo queues Q 0


I have just finished testing the latest upstream kernel, and I confirm
that the bug still exists (i.e. I am still occasionally seeing 'fail to
flush all tx fifo queues Q 0' messages).

  [8086:4238] iwlwifi: fail to flush all tx fifo queues Q 0

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Tablet with an Intel Centrino Ultimate-N
  6300 AGN wireless card.  Ever since I have upgraded to Ubuntu 13.10
  from Ubuntu 12.10, I keep experiencing this annoying issue on wireless
  networks with multiple APs:  a TX queue gets stuck, and the wireless
  card cannot send any packets.  The Wi-Fi LED constantly flashes, and
  sometimes, it becomes nearly impossible to restart the wireless card
  using Fn+F5.

  The NetworkManager connection is setup as follows:

  SSID:  IllinoisNet
  BSSID:  DA:BE:76:xx:xx:xx
  Security:  WPA/WPA2 Enterprise
  Authentication:  Protected EAP (PEAP)
  CA Certificate:  /etc/ssl/certs/AddTrust_External_Root.pem
  PEAP Version:  Automatic
  Inner Authentication:  MSCHAPv2

  Notice that I have manually specified a BSSID to force the system to
  use only one AP (since I have not found a way to reduce the roaming
  aggressiveness on Intel wireless cards in Linux).

  Attached is the Wireshark log and the syslog output while TX queue 0
  is stuck.
