Subject[98/98] iwlwifi: Fix throughput stall issue in HT mode for 5000
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Wey-Yi Guy <wey-yi.w.guy@intel.com>

commit 1152dcc28c66a74b5b3f1a3ede0aa6729bfd48e4 upstream

Similar to 6000 and 1000 series, RTS/CTS is the recommended protection
mechanism for 5000 series in HT mode based on the HW design.

Using RTS/CTS will better protect the inner exchange from interference,
especially in highly-congested environment, it also prevent uCode encounter
TX FIFO underrun and other HT mode related performance issues.
