I ran into this issue where using the fix-iv patch combined with an 
ath9k WiFi card does not work correctly.

Clients are able to connect but are unable to get IP addresses by DHCP.

When I built an image for a router with a mt76, the WiFi works correctly 
with the patch.

The router I use is an Archer c7 v2.

Maybe the issue relates to the email formatting.

Would you please send the patch as an email attachment?
