    mac80211: FIF_PSPOLL filter flag · e3b90ca2

    When an interface is configured in the AP mode, the mac80211
    implementation doesn't inform the driver to receive PS Poll frames.
    It leads to inability to communicate with power-saving stations
    reliably.
    The FIF_CONTROL flag isn't passed by mac80211 to
    ieee80211_ops.configure_filter when an interface is in the AP mode.
    And it's ok, because we don't want to receive ACK frames and other
    control ones, but only PS Poll ones.
    
    This patch introduces the FIF_PSPOLL filter flag in addition to
    FIF_CONTROL, which means for the driver "pass PS Poll frames".
    
    This flag is passed to the driver:
    A) When an interface is configured in the AP mode.
    B) In all cases, when the FIF_CONTROL flag was passed earlier (in
    addition to it).
