This sounds to me like it's not necessarily an issue related to
randomized addresses. With the patch it's still possible to suffer
packet loss of the AP->STA deauth which would fail to clear the flag
leading to the same kind of issue.

Instead, why not clear out the flag in mlme_event_auth() instead of
relying on prev_addr? That would address both your randomized MAC
address case as well as a packet loss case, no?
