[ 03/17] rt2800: fix wrong TX power compensation

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Sep 29 2013 - 16:06:44 EST

3.0-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Stanislaw Gruszka <sgruszka@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 6e956da2027c767859128b9bfef085cf2a8e233b upstream.

We should not do temperature compensation on devices without
EXTERNAL_TX_ALC bit set (called DynamicTxAgcControl on vendor driver).
Such devices can have totally bogus TSSI parameters on the EEPROM,
but still threaded by us as valid and result doing wrong TX power

This fix inability to connect to AP on slightly longer distance on
some Ralink chips/devices.
