Subject: [PATCH 1/4 2.6.32.y] mac80211: explicitly disable/enable QoS
Date: Fri, 11 Jun 2010 17:03:13 +0200

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.
