iwlagn: fix "Received BA when not expected"
commit bfd36103ec26599557c2bd3225a1f1c9267f8fcb upstream. Need to use broadcast sta_id for management frames, otherwise we broke BA session in the firmware and get messages like that: "Received BA when not expected" or (on older kernels): "BA scd_flow 0 does not match txq_id 10" This fix regression introduced in 2.6.35 during station management code rewrite by: commit 2a87c26bbe9587baeb9e56d3ce0b4971bd777643 Author: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com> Date: Fri Apr 30 11:30:45 2010 -0700 iwlwifi: use iwl_find_station less Patch partially resolve: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=16691 However, there are still 11n performance problems on 4965 and 5xxx devices that need to be investigated.
