Subject[patch 060/176] ath9k_hw: disabled PAPRD for AR9003
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Luis R. Rodriguez <lrodriguez@atheros.com>

commit 6f4810101a629b31b5427872a09ea092cfc5c4bd upstream.

AR9003's PAPRD was enabled prematurely, and is causing some
large discrepancies on throughput and network connectivity.
For example downlink (RX) throughput against an AR9280 AP
can vary widlely from 43-73 Mbit/s while disabling this
gets AR9382 (2x2) up to around 93 Mbit/s in a 2.4 GHz HT20 setup.
