KRACK Attacks: Breaking WPA2

This website presents the Key Reinstallation Attack (KRACK). It breaks the WPA2 protocol by forcing nonce reuse in encryption algorithms used by Wi-Fi.
So, when will this be fixed in ____?

There was an embargo, so I'd expect that most PC OSs have already published a fix (Debian had a fixed package in all releases with security support this morning, and they're the only ones that I checked).

Some routers may receive a fix, sooner or later, if they aren't older than a few months.

Phones that are still supported (how long is that nowadays? 6 months?) will also receive a fix (I'd expect quite soon), I'm not going to hold my breath for the other ones (including mine)

I fully expect light bulbs and other IoT devices not to be fixed ever, of course.
