[PATCH] UBUNTU: [Config] CONFIG_MAC80211_MESSAGE_TRACING=y

This option allows for writing mac80211 debug messages to the trace
buffer. Messages are not written to the kernel log and are only written
to the trace buffer when enabled via ftrace, so run-time overhead is
minimal. It does cause a modest increase in the size of the mac80211
module (about 24KB for amd64). Enabling this will enhance our ability to
debug wireless issues on end-user systems.
