Subject: [PATCH 02/32] staging: wfx: do not stop mac80211 queueing during tx_policy upload
Date: Wed,  1 Apr 2020 13:03:35 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200401110405.80282-3-Jerome.Pouiller@silabs.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200401110405.80282-1-Jerome.Pouiller@silabs.com>

From: Jérôme Pouiller <jerome.pouiller@silabs.com>

When a new tx_policy has to be uploaded, it is necessary to avoid any
race between the frame and the policy. So, the driver stops the tx queue
during tx_policy upload. However, it is not necessary to stop mac80211
queuing.
