This is some testbed? Could you share how did you setup such
environment and what are client devices ?

This is indicator that HW/FW has a problem. There could be various
reasons for that. One possible I can also observe in my setup,is strange
mishmash of seq  on frames which were not acked in BlockACK and
had to be resent. This can happen when many frames are wrongly decoded
(i.e. when there is bad radio condition or we have not correct low level
RF/BBP setup for a Ralink device). To mitigate that problem we can
limit length of agreggeted AMPDU frame.

I attached two patches which do that. One for RX side second for TX side.
Please check if they make a diffrent. You can also hardcode ba_size = 0
for those 30 clients setup.

Note the patches can cause (possibly small) perfromance degradation on
good setups. 

Mathias, could you check them as well and see if they do not cause
performance regression on your device ? Lastly when I changed ba_size
setting, it was a problem on your setup.

For those errors I recommend to remove 

600-23-rt2x00-rt2800mmio-add-a-workaround-for-spurious-TX_F.patch

patch. Whould be good if OpenWRT developers could apply this patch only
on target where it is really needed, not for all rt2800 devices.

Thanks
Stanislaw
