Luis Henriques June 18, 2013, 11:42 a.m. -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

commit c815797663b72e3ac1736f1886538152bc48e4af upstream.

If a P2P-Device is present and another virtual interface triggers
the connection work, the system crash because it tries to check
if the P2P-Device's netdev (which doesn't exist) is up. Skip any
wdevs that have no netdev to fix this.
