A better-tested version of kernel and firmware is uploaded now.
Looks like I needed to add a hack to firmware to bump pkt-size by
16 for IBSS + RSN encrypted frames. Not sure exactly why, but seems
to work in light testing.
I removed the skb-padto hack from the kernel, and kernel is rebased on
top of official 4.0 now.
