Subject[patch 07/58] mac80211: fix basic rate bitmap calculation
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Johannes Berg <johannes@sipsolutions.net>

upstream commit: 7e0986c17f695952ce5d61ed793ce048ba90a661

"mac80211: fix basic rates setting from association response"
introduced a copy/paste error.

Unfortunately, this not just leads to wrong data being passed
to the driver but is remotely exploitable for some hardware or
driver combinations.
