Description Evan Teran 2012-08-06 06:02:56 UTC
when wireless is active, net-wireless/broadcom-sta- fills up dmesg with messages like this:

ERROR @wl_cfg80211_get_station : Could not get rate (-1)
ERROR @wl_cfg80211_get_station : Could not get rssi (-1)

The wireless works fine, and I imagine that they are related to the disabling of code related to ndo_set_multicast_list which are necessary for compiling on newer kernels.

Since the wireless works fine, I would probably consider it reasonable to just comment out the two printk's which produce these messages since they fire off pretty much constantly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
emerge net-wireless/broadcom-sta- on a newer kernel (>= 3.4).
enable wireless
look at dmesg
Actual Results:  
ERROR @wl_cfg80211_get_station : Could not get rate (-1)
ERROR @wl_cfg80211_get_station : Could not get rssi (-1)

repeated constantly in dmesg

Expected Results:  
a reasonable amount of log messages.
