Subject: [PATCH 3.13 036/149] iwlwifi: disable TX AMPDU by default for iwldvm

3.13-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Emmanuel Grumbach <emmanuel.grumbach@...el.com>

commit 205e2210daa975d92ace485a65a31ccc4077fe1a upstream.

NICs supported by iwldvm don't handle well TX AMPDU.
Disable it by default, still leave the possibility to
the user to force enable it with a debug parameter.

NICs supported by iwlmvm don't suffer from the same issue,
leave TX AMPDU enabled by default for these.
