allready tried to patch this issue. I applied the patch and retested. 
It still dont solves the problem. As you can see the ifindex differs 
which should lead to reject this event, but does not.

drv->ifindex(8) != ifi->ifi_index(6), reject event
fromlen=12 addr=00:00:00:00:00:00
Wireless event: cmd=0x8b15 len=20
Wireless event: new AP: 00:00:00:00:00:00
Setting scan request: 0 sec 100000 usec
Added BSSID 00:0b:6b:33:61:2e into blacklist

I dont know yet why the wireless event still leads to blacklisting. 
Maybe the patch is incomplete.
