    mac80211: request TX status where needed · 7351c6bd

    Right now all frames mac80211 hands to the driver
    have the IEEE80211_TX_CTL_REQ_TX_STATUS flag set to
    request TX status. This isn't really necessary, only
    the injected frames need TX status (the latter for
    hostapd) so move setting this flag.
    
    The rate control algorithms also need TX status, but
    they don't require it.
    
    Also, rt2x00 uses that bit for its own purposes and
    seems to require it being set for all frames, but
    that can be fixed in rt2x00.
    
    This doesn't really change anything for any drivers
    but in the future drivers using hw-rate control may
    opt to not report TX status for frames that don't
    have the IEEE80211_TX_CTL_REQ_TX_STATUS flag set.
