The patch file


Original code:

9635            else {
9636                    rix = ieee80211_ratectl_rate(ni, NULL, 0);
9637                    rate = ni->ni_txrate;
9639                    if (rix > 0)
9640                            rate_fb = ni->ni_rates.rs_rates[rix - 1] &
9641                                IEEE80211_RATE_VAL;
9642                    else
9643                            rate_fb = rate;
9644            }

The ni->ni_rates.rs_rates container is supposed to house the negotiated rates
in increasing magnitude.
The rix variable contains the size of this container.
The original code is trying to get the last element in the container (supposed
to be the highest rate).
After a few tests though, it turned out that this container has some filler
elements of value "0" at its end. So, the last element in the container is not
necessarily the highest rate.
