Subject: pull request: wireless 2014-02-17

Dave,

Please pull this batch of fixes intended for the 3.14 stream...

For the iwlwifi one, Emmanuel says:

"As explicitly written in the commit message, we prefer to disable Tx
AMPDU on NICs supported by iwldvm. This feature gives a big boost in
Tx performance, but the firmware is buggy and we can't rely on it.
Our hope is that most of the users out there want wifi to surf on
the web which means that they care more for Rx traffic than for Tx.
People who want to enable it can do so with the help of a module
parameter."

On top of that...

Dan Carpenter fixes a typo/thinko in ath5k.

Olivier Langlois fixes a couple of rtlwifi issues, one which leaves
IRQs disabled too long (causing a variety of problems elsewhere),
and one which fixes an incorrect return code when failing to enable
the NIC.

Russell King fixes a NULL pointer dereference in hostap.

Stanislaw Gruszka fixes a DMA coherence issue in the rtl8187 driver.

Please let me know if there are problems!

Thanks,

John
