Subject: [PATCH v2] mac80211: Mesh Fast xmit support

Currently Fast xmit is supported in AP, STA and other device types where
the destination doesn't change for the lifetime of its association by
caching the static parts of the header that can be reused directly for
every Tx such as addresses and updates only mutable header fields such as
PN. This technique is not directly applicable for a Mesh device type
due to the dynamic nature of the topology and protocol. The header is
built based on the destination mesh device which is proxying a certain
external device and based on the Mesh destination the next hop changes.
And the RA/A1 which is the next hop for reaching the destination can
vary during runtime as per the best route based on airtime. To
accommodate these changes and to come up with a solution to avoid
overhead during header generation, the headers comprising the MAC, Mesh
and LLC part are cached whenever data for a certain external destination
is sent. This cached header is reused every time a data is sent to that
external destination.

To ensure the changes in network are reflected in these cached headers,
the Mesh Proxy path table and Mesh path table changes are monitored
and corresponding headers are updated or flushed as applicable so that
the header used for a frame towards a certain destination is valid.

Old headers are flushed by the mesh housekeeping timers and based on the
cache size.

Only 6addr frame headers are cached currently.

Tested with ath11k driver.

v2: Moved to static header cache size of 512 entries
Rearranged entry struct to avoid padding
Used GFP_ATOMIC while entry allocation in tx path
Compile tested from previous version - only above trivial changes

The title should be:

wifi: mac80211: Mesh Fast xmit support

But I suspect Johannes can fix that so no need resend because of this.
