I was using a AOKP ROM with lean kernel (4.1.x) and wifi tethering was working fine.

I then went to 4.2.1 and 4.2.2, WiFi tethering so far has been broken.

I tried Bigxie's deoxed, tried Android Revolution HD 10.x, and Rootbox's 4.2.2 nightly with the same result where WiFi tethering doesn't work. In my case, the client that is trying to connect will connect, IP is assigned but it won't be able to access the internet.

The ROM flashing were a full wipe, as well as dirty wipe - made no difference.

I was using Pdanet on a USB tether and it no longer works after update. My phone is totally stock with no mods. I did a factory wipe and reinstalled everything and still a no go. PC is a Windows 7 box with all associated drivers reinstalled. Contacted June fabrics (Pdanet Dev) about it and they think its a driver issue.

I also have these threads gpoing on it. Though you will get better support here than at the Google Dev forums.

For anyone that is interested, I got an email from PDAnet yesterday that says they have fixed the problem with a new PC side software install. I don't know if this helps any of you but there is a fix out there at least for PDAnet.
