Madwifi doesn't call netif_carrier_on() in master mode, so Linux drops
all packets. When I remove the dev_deactivate() line, it works fine again.
Netdevices are "born" with carrier on, so if your code don't call
netif_carrier_off() or set dev->state directly, I don't see how you
can end up in this state. Could you investigate this?
Should we fix madwifi or the kernel?
The code is there for a reason, so hopefully we can work this out.
