Series [1/6] mac80211: minstrel_ht: use bitfields to encode rate indexes | expand

Commit Message

Felix Fietkau Jan. 24, 2021, 12:28 p.m. UTC
This was added to mitigate the effects of too much sampling on devices that
use a static global fallback table instead of configurable multi-rate retry.
Now that the sampling algorithm is improved, this code path no longer performs
any better than the standard probing on affected devices.
