Subject: [PATCH 1/4 2.6.33.y] mac80211: explicitly disable/enable QoS
Date: Mon,  7 Jun 2010 12:00:24 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1275904827-6598-1-git-send-email-sgruszka@redhat.com> (raw)

commit e1b3ec1a2a336c328c336cfa5485a5f0484cc90d upstream.

Add interface to disable/enable QoS (aka WMM or WME). Currently drivers
enable it explicitly when ->conf_tx method is called, and newer disable.
Disabling is needed for some APs, which do not support QoS, such
we should send QoS frames to them.
