Subject[37/75] iwlwifi: do not set the sequence control bit is not needed
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

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

commit 123877b80ed62c3b897c53357b622574c023b642 upstream.

Check the IEEE80211_TX_CTL_ASSIGN_SEQ flag from mac80211, then decide how to
set the TX_CMD_FLG_SEQ_CTL_MSK bit. Setting the wrong bit in BAR frame whill
make the firmware to increment the sequence number which is incorrect and
cause unknown behavior.
