Using the existence of a sta_info as a flag of peering success is the root cause of this problem.

Peering should be managed by the state machine independently.
A sta_info should be related to the existence of the node, the beacon of the node independently.
So the existence of a sta_info should not be related to the peering success.

I think the original patch and the patch to be committed to the open80211s can solve the problem.
