mac80211: ignore NullFunc frames in the duplicate detection
commit 990d71846a0b7281bd933c34d734e6afc7408e7e upstream. NullFunc packets should never be duplicate just like QoS-NullFunc packets. We saw a client that enters / exits power save with NullFunc frames (and not with QoS-NullFunc) despite the fact that the association supports HT. This specific client also re-uses a non-zero sequence number for different NullFunc frames. At some point, the client had to send a retransmission of the NullFunc frame and we dropped it, leading to a misalignment in the power save state. Fix this by never consider a NullFunc frame as duplicate, just like we do for QoS NullFunc frames.
