mac80211: Fix a warning due to skipping tailroom reservation for IV
Mohammed Shafi Shajakhan [Thu, 5 May 2011 05:29:24 +0000 (10:29 +0530)]
The devices that require IV generation in software need tailroom
reservation  for ICVs used in TKIP or WEP encryptions.
Currently, decision to skip the tailroom reservation in the tx
path was taken only on whether driver wants MMIC to be generated
in software or not. Following patch appends IV generation check for
such decisions and fixes the following warning.
