Subject[120/151] ath9k: fix tx status reporting
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Felix Fietkau <>

This is a backport of upstream commit: e8c6342d989e241513baeba4b05a04b6b1f3bc8b

This patch fixes a bug in ath9k's tx status check, which
caused mac80211 to consider regularly transmitted unicast frames
as un-acked.

When checking the ts_status field for errors, it needs to be masked
with ATH9K_TXERR_FILT, because this field also contains other fields

Without this patch, AP mode is pretty much unusable, as hostapd
checks the ACK status for the frames that it injects.
