mwifiex: disable transmission buffer aggregation for AMSDU packets
Yogesh Ashok Powar [Mon, 6 Jun 2011 09:24:17 +0000 (14:24 +0530)]
Padding per MSDU will affect the length of next packet and hence
the exact length of next packet is uncertain here.

Also, aggregation of transmission buffer, while downloading the
data to the card, wont gain much on the AMSDU packets as the AMSDU
packets utilizes the transmission buffer space to the maximum
(adapter->tx_buf_size).
