Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.1 164/219] ath9k: correctly handle short radar pulses
Date
From: Zefir Kurtisi <zefir.kurtisi@neratec.com>

[ Upstream commit df5c4150501ee7e86383be88f6490d970adcf157 ]

In commit 3c0efb745a17 ("ath9k: discard undersized packets")
the lower bound of RX packets was set to 10 (min ACK size) to
filter those that would otherwise be treated as invalid at
mac80211.

Alas, short radar pulses are reported as PHY_ERROR frames
with length set to 3. Therefore their detection stopped
working after that commit.

NOTE: ath9k drivers built thereafter will not pass DFS
certification.

This extends the criteria for short packets to explicitly
handle PHY_ERROR frames.

Fixes: 3c0efb745a17 ("ath9k: discard undersized packets")
