[RFC PATCH 1/1] mwifiex: Remove stop_net_dev_queue operation when uap handling packets forwarding.

From: Huawei Yang
Date: Mon Jun 03 2013 - 03:54:50 EST

Under uap mode mwifiex may stop all net tx queues on forwarding packets. This may stop some tx queues and they never have chance to be waked up... There is also no need to check tx_pending and stop queues here. Because local host has such kind of check when transmitting packets and it's not proper to have forwarding affect local transmitting.
