    mac80211: do not pass PS frames out of mac80211 again · 8f77f384
    Johannes Berg authored
    In order to handle powersave frames properly we had needed
    to pass these out to the device queues again, and introduce
    the skb->requeue bit. This, however, also has unnecessary
    overhead by needing to 'clean up' already tried frames, and
    this clean-up code is also buggy when software encryption
    is used.
    Instead of sending the frames via the master netdev queue
    again, simply put them into the pending queue. This also
    fixes a problem where frames for that particular station
    could be reordered when some were still on the software
    queues and older ones are re-injected into the software
    queue after them.
