Subject: [PATCH] ath9k: limit retries for powersave response frames
 
In some cases, the channel might be busy enough that an ath9k AP's
response to PS-Poll frames might be too slow and the station has already
gone to sleep. To avoid wasting too much airtime on this, limit the
number of retries on such frames and ensure that no sample rate gets
used.
