This patch fixes the probe timeout after less than 2 minutes.
I probably should have resend the two patches (tx done hw implementation
and this one). Just thought about it.
As it applies above the tx done implementation. I did not make one that
applies above the software only implementation as it is broken since
entry index was replaced by key index in rt2800pci write tx desc (as
Wireless Cli Id).
