Subject[PATCH 3.16 081/157] rt2x00: do not increment sequence number while re-transmitting
3.16.72-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Vijayakumar Durai <vijayakumar.durai1@vivint.com>

commit 746ba11f170603bf1eaade817553a6c2e9135bbe upstream.

Currently rt2x00 devices retransmit the management frames with
incremented sequence number if hardware is assigning the sequence.

This is HW bug fixed already for non-QOS data frames, but it should
be fixed for management frames except beacon.

Without fix retransmitted frames have wrong SN:

AlphaNet_e8:fb:36 Vivotek_52:31:51 Authentication, SN=1648, FN=0, Flags=........C Frame is not being retransmitted 1648 1
AlphaNet_e8:fb:36 Vivotek_52:31:51 Authentication, SN=1649, FN=0, Flags=....R...C Frame is being retransmitted 1649 1
AlphaNet_e8:fb:36 Vivotek_52:31:51 Authentication, SN=1650, FN=0, Flags=....R...C Frame is being retransmitted 1650 1

With the fix SN stays correctly the same:

88:6a:e3:e8:f9:a2 8c:f5:a3:88:76:87 Authentication, SN=1450, FN=0, Flags=........C
88:6a:e3:e8:f9:a2 8c:f5:a3:88:76:87 Authentication, SN=1450, FN=0, Flags=....R...C
88:6a:e3:e8:f9:a2 8c:f5:a3:88:76:87 Authentication, SN=1450, FN=0, Flags=....R...C
