Subject: [PATCH 32/32] staging: wfx: remove hack about tx_rate policies
Date: Wed,  1 Apr 2020 13:04:05 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20200401110405.80282-33-Jerome.Pouiller@silabs.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200401110405.80282-1-Jerome.Pouiller@silabs.com>

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

Current code contains a weird hack to avoid switch from 54Mbps CTS to
1Mbps. However, we have not been able to reproduce the problem and
hardware team don't know any defect of this kind. So, it seems this hack
is no more necessary.
