The attached patch seems to enable 802.11w for rt2800pci (AP). It does not work for rt2800usb (rt3572 SUPP), even if the set_key error disappears (originally the flag IEEE80211_HW_MFP_CAPABLE was set unconditionally). I can't say, if it works with all rt2800pci devices and I can't say, if it works with rt2800pci device used as supplicant. Tested (incl. PTK rekeying) with ath9k supplicant. Deauthentication does work fine, too. I couldn't test, if using more then one supplicant at the same time, does work, too. Legacy driver (rt5572sta) seems to not support 802.11w at all (with ralink driver). Even if ieee80211w=2 in supplicant.conf is enabled, it uses plain text management frames. Regards, Andreas Hartmann
