SubjectRe: Fixing rt2500pci [PATCH]

In kernel version 2.6.26-rc9 my wireless LAN card worked; but in the
released 2.6.26, my RaLink rt2500 card wouldn't associate.

Git-bisect led me to this patch:

rt2x00: Remove ieee80211_tx_control argument from write_tx_desc()

I believe that there is a problem with that patch --- it
(inadvertantly) removes an extra line of code, that used to set the

This patch reinstates that line, and with it my card works again.

The original version I sent still used the skbdesc->data_len which has
been removed; this version of the patch applies on top of 2.6.27-rc1.
