	  This option is recommended for driver authors and strongly

	  when a driver hands mac80211 a buffer that is aligned in
	  a way that will cause problems with the IP stack on some

	  This option affects code generation in mac80211, when
	  selected some functions are marked "noinline" to allow
	  easier debugging of problems in the transmit and receive
	  paths.

	  This option increases code size a bit and inserts a lot
	  of function calls in the code, but is otherwise safe to
	  enable.
