To be clear, I have all of these in the queue:

be03d4a45c09 rt2x00: Don't let mac80211 send a BAR when an AMPDU subframe fails
5b632fe85ec8 mac80211: introduce IEEE80211_HW_TEARDOWN_AGGR_ON_BAR_FAIL
ab9d6e4ffe19 Revert: "rt2x00: Don't let mac80211 send a BAR when an AMPDU subframe fails"

and I'm intending to drop/defer them all.

Ben.
