    mac80211: add stations tied to AP_VLANs during hw reconfig · 19103a4b

    As part of hw reconfig, only stations linked to AP interfaces are added
    back to the driver ignoring those which are tied to AP_VLAN interfaces.
    
    It is true that there could be stations tied to the AP_VLAN interface while
    serving 4addr clients or when using AP_VLAN for VLAN operations; we should
    be adding these stations back to the driver as part of hw reconfig, failing
    to do so can cause functional issues.
    
    In the case of ath10k driver, the following errors were observed.
    
    ath10k_pci : failed to install key for non-existent peer XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

    Also while bringing down the AP VAP, WARN_ONs and errors related to peer
    removal were observed.

    These issues got fixed by adding the stations which are
    tied to AP_VLANs back to the driver.
