[ Upstream commit d873697ef2b7e1b6fdd8e9d449d9354bd5d29a4a ]

Commit 10cb8e617560 ("mac80211: enable QoS support for nl80211 ctrl port")
changed ieee80211_tx_control_port() to aways call
__ieee80211_select_queue() without checking local->hw.queues.

__ieee80211_select_queue() returns a queue-id between 0 and 3, which means
that now ieee80211_tx_control_port() may end up setting the queue-mapping
for a skb to a value higher then local->hw.queues if local->hw.queues
is less then 4.

Specifically this is a problem for ralink rt2500-pci cards where
local->hw.queues is 2. There this causes rt2x00queue_get_tx_queue() to
return NULL and the following error to be logged: "ieee80211 phy0:
rt2x00mac_tx: Error - Attempt to send packet over invalid queue 2",
after which association with the AP fails.

Other callers of __ieee80211_select_queue() skip calling it when
local->hw.queues < IEEE80211_NUM_ACS, add the same check to
ieee80211_tx_control_port(). This fixes ralink rt2500-pci and
similar cards when less then 4 tx-queues no longer working.
