Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 124/130] mac80211: consider QoS Null frames for STA_NULLFUNC_ACKED
Date
From: Thomas Pedersen <thomas@adapt-ip.com>

[ Upstream commit 08a5bdde3812993cb8eb7aa9124703df0de28e4b ]

Commit 7b6ddeaf27ec ("mac80211: use QoS NDP for AP probing")
let STAs send QoS Null frames as PS triggers if the AP was
a QoS STA. However, the mac80211 PS stack relies on an
interface flag IEEE80211_STA_NULLFUNC_ACKED for
determining trigger frame ACK, which was not being set for
acked non-QoS Null frames. The effect is an inability to
trigger hardware sleep via IEEE80211_CONF_PS since the QoS
Null frame was seemingly never acked.

This bug only applies to drivers which set both
IEEE80211_HW_REPORTS_TX_ACK_STATUS and
IEEE80211_HW_PS_NULLFUNC_STACK.

Detect the acked QoS Null frame to restore STA power save.
