Hi, will try it soon.

Just out of curiosity, how is this patch better than the one before and
why is it better to use a sysctl: if there are other people with same
problem who do not necessarily browse the mailing list, they would have
hard time finding the sysctl which would fix the problem.

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.
