3.5.7.2 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Javier Cardona <javier@cozybit.com>

commit f7fbf70ee9db6da6033ae50d100e017ac1f26555 upstream.

Per IEEE Std. 802.11-2012, Sec 8.2.4.4.1, the sequence Control field is
not present in control frames.  We noticed this problem when processing
Block Ack Requests.
