Subject: [PATCH 3.13 114/259] iwlwifi: dvm: don't enable CTS to self

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

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

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

commit 43d826ca5979927131685cc2092c7ce862cb91cd upstream.

We should always prefer to use full RTS protection. Using
CTS to self gives a meaningless improvement, but this flow
is much harder for the firmware which is likely to have
issues with it.
