Subject: [PATCH] mac80211: reduce packet loss event false positives
When running a large number of packets per second with a high data rate
and long A-MPDUs, the packet loss threshold can be reached very quickly
when the link conditions change. This frequently shows up as spurious
disconnects.
Mitigate false positives by using a similar logic for regular stations
as the one being used for TDLS, though with a more aggressive timeout.
Packet loss events are only reported if no ACK was received for a second.
