    mac80211: fix TX sequence numbers · f591fa5d
    Johannes Berg authored
    This patch makes mac80211 assign proper sequence numbers to
    QoS-data frames. It also removes the old sequence number code
    because we noticed that only the driver or hardware can assign
    sequence numbers to non-QoS-data and especially management
    frames in a race-free manner because beacons aren't passed
    through mac80211's TX path.
    This patch also adds temporary code to the rt2x00 drivers to
    not break them completely, that code will have to be reworked
    for proper sequence numbers on beacons.
    It also moves sequence number assignment down in the TX path
    so no sequence numbers are assigned to frames that are dropped.
