Subject: [PATCH] rtl8180: avoid accessing the data mapped to streaming DMA

In rtl8180_tx(), skb->data is mapped to streaming DMA on line 476:
  mapping = dma_map_single(..., skb->data, ...);

On line 459, skb->data is assigned to hdr after cast:
  struct ieee80211_hdr *hdr = (struct ieee80211_hdr *)skb->data;

Then hdr->seq_ctrl is accessed on lines 540 and 541:
  hdr->seq_ctrl &= cpu_to_le16(IEEE80211_SCTL_FRAG);
  hdr->seq_ctrl |= cpu_to_le16(priv->seqno);

These DMA accesses may cause data inconsistency between CPU and hardwre.

To fix this problem, hdr->seq_ctrl is accessed before the DMA mapping.
