[PATCH 11/11] carl9170: use ether_addr_equal_64bits

From: Julia Lawall
Date: Mon Dec 30 2013 - 12:23:52 EST

From: Julia Lawall <Julia.Lawall@xxxxxxx>

Ether_addr_equal_64bits is more efficient than ether_addr_equal, and can be
used when each argument is an array within a structure that contains at
least two bytes of data beyond the array.

The structures involved are:
ieee80211_hdr defined in include/linux/ieee80211.h,
ieee80211_bar defined in include/linux/ieee80211.h and
ath_common defined in drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath.h

This was done using Coccinelle (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/).

Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <Julia.Lawall@xxxxxxx>

The semantic patch used is rather long and can be found in message 0 of
this patch series.
