        mac80211: disable software retry for now
    
        Pavel Roskin reported a problem that seems to be due to
        software retry of already transmitted frames. It turns
        out that we've never done that correctly, but due to
        some recent changes it now crashes in the TX code. I've
        added a comment in the patch that explains the problem
        better and also points to possible solutions -- which
        I can't implement right now.
    
    I disabled software retry of failed/filtered frames
    because it was broken. With the work of the previous
    patches, it now becomes fairly easy to re-enable it
    by adding a flag indicating that the frame shouldn't
    be modified, but still running it through the transmit
    handlers to populate the control information.
