Shouldn't that be fixed instead? Or am I missing something here? It does
not look desirable to skip VLAN binding in any case.. Or are you saying
that the STA is already bound to a specific VLAN and skipping this
operation does not actually break anything for VLAN binding in practice?

I don't really want to apply this without more detailed description of
the issue and how this fixes it without causing security issues.
