Subject[PATCH 5.4 014/110] staging: vt6656: correct packet types for CTS protect, mode.
Date
From: Malcolm Priestley <tvboxspy@gmail.com>

commit d971fdd3412f8342747778fb59b8803720ed82b1 upstream.

It appears that the driver still transmits in CTS protect mode even
though it is not enabled in mac80211.

That is both packet types PK_TYPE_11GA and PK_TYPE_11GB both use CTS protect.
The only difference between them GA does not use B rates.

Find if only B rate in GB or GA in protect mode otherwise transmit packets
as PK_TYPE_11A.
