I have reread the related subclause, it seems standards allow STA to
ignore mcast/bcast's TX seq when detecting duplicated MAC frames; this
also means the sysctl may not be necessary at all.
Please nuke all old patches and test a new patch :)
No extra sysctl tuning is needed for this patch. And please make a
quickkernel at least, since in the last patch I changed layout of
ieee80211com and I reverted it in the above patch.
I will wait a week for your to test it.
Does it work for you?
