There is no bug with ping latencies when power save is enabled. Ping
send packet every second, between that we put driver in power save
mode (i.e. tell AP that we are sleeping and it has to buffer frame
to us). When we send ping packet, we wake up and receive packet from
a AP after longer time than in normal operation mode.

I did more testing here and I have one device that works very bad,
no matter if PS is configured or not. It is

phy6 -> rt2x00_set_chip: Info - Chipset detected - rt: 3071, rf: 0008, rev: 021c.

I'm going to investigate problems with that device, hopefully these are the
same problems that Robert and Andreas have.
