Subject: [PATCH] wifi: rsi: Fix handling of 802.3 EAPOL frames sent via control port

When using wpa_supplicant v2.10, this driver is no longer able to
associate with any AP and fails in the EAPOL 4-way handshake while
sending the 2/4 message to the AP. The problem is not present in
wpa_supplicant v2.9 or older. The problem stems from HostAP commit
144314eaa ("wpa_supplicant: Send EAPOL frames over nl80211 where available")
which changes the way EAPOL frames are sent, from them being send
at L2 frames to them being sent via nl80211 control port.

An EAPOL frame sent as L2 frame is passed to the WiFi driver with
skb->protocol ETH_P_PAE, while EAPOL frame sent via nl80211 control
port has skb->protocol set to ETH_P_802_3 . The later happens in
ieee80211_tx_control_port(), where the EAPOL frame is encapsulated
into 802.3 frame.

The rsi_91x driver handles ETH_P_PAE EAPOL frames as high-priority
frames and sends them via highest-priority transmit queue, while
the ETH_P_802_3 frames are sent as regular frames. The EAPOL 4-way
handshake frames must be sent as highest-priority, otherwise the
4-way handshake times out.

Therefore, to fix this problem, inspect the ETH_P_802_3 frames in
the rsi_91x driver, check the ethertype of the encapsulated frame,
and in case it is ETH_P_PAE, transmit the frame via high-priority
queue just like other ETH_P_PAE frames.

Fixes: 0eb42586cf876 ("rsi: data packet descriptor enhancements")

NOTE: I am really unsure about the method of finding out the exact
      place of ethernet header in the encapsulated packet and then
      extracting the ethertype from it. Is there maybe some sort of
      helper function for that purpose ?
