2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Shanyu Zhao <shanyu.zhao@intel.com>

commit a2c40249a36d0b4d76d1caf6bf806e4ae5b06e8a upstream.

Currently whenever rts thresold is set, every packet will use RTS
protection no matter its size exceeds the threshold or not. This is
due to a bug in the rts threshold check.
	if (len > tx->local->hw.wiphy->rts_threshold) {
		txrc.rts = rts = true;
Basically it is comparing an int (len) and a u32 (rts_threshold),
and the variable len is assigned as:
	len = min_t(int, tx->skb->len + FCS_LEN,
However, when frag_threshold is "-1", len is always "-1", which is
0xffffffff therefore rts is always set to true.
