Subject: [152/272] p54: fix sequence no. accounting off-by-one error

2.6.37-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Christian Lamparter <>

commit 3b5c5827d1f80ad8ae844a8b1183f59ddb90fe25 upstream.

P54_HDR_FLAG_DATA_OUT_SEQNR is meant to tell the
firmware that "the frame's sequence number has
already been set by the application."

Whereas IEEE80211_TX_CTL_ASSIGN_SEQ is set for
frames which lack a valid sequence number and
either the driver or firmware has to assign one.

Yup, it's the exact opposite!
