[rt2x00-users] [PATCH 3/9] rt2x00: Re-order tx descriptor writing code in drivers.

Wed May 12 07:51:39 AEST 2010


Where possible, write the tx descriptor words from start to end, to
follow a logical ordering of words.
Where this is not possible (in rt2400pci, rt2500pci and rt61pci) add
a comment as to why word 0 needs to be written last.
