 New Revision: 232764
 URL: http://svn.freebsd.org/changeset/base/232764
 
 Log:
   Don't flood the cabq/mcastq with frames.
   
   In a very noisy 2.4GHz environment (with HT/40 enabled, making it worse)
   I saw the following occur:
   
   * the air was considered "busy" a lot of the time;
   * the cabq time is quite short due to staggered beacons being enabled;
   * it just wasn't able to keep up TX'ing CABQ frames;
   * .. and the cabq would swallow up all the TX ath_buf's.
   
   This patch introduces a twiddle which allows the maximum cabq depth to be
   set, forcing further frames to be dropped.
   
   It defaults to the TX buffer count at the moment, so the default behaviour
   isn't changed.
   
   I've also started fleshing out a similar setup for the data path, so
   it doesn't swallow up all the available TX buffers and preventing management
   frames (such as ADDBA) out.
