The problem is:


Packet number - Receiver


I remove from queue P1 so aggregation could be made with P3 and P4 that
have same receiver RA. But aggregation is performed by an algorithm that
decides how many packets will form aggregated packet so they should be
removed from queue only if they are really part of final A-MSDU.The
others must preserve arrive order.

Another way than deletion with packet id, could be storing of a
PacketQueueI per packet?
Maybe in this way:

std::list<std::pair<Ptr<Packet>,PacketQueueI> >
WifiMacQueue::GetPacketsForReceiver (Mac48Address addr)

and modify

WifiMacQueue::Erase (PacketQueueI pos)

Erase is called for every packet in A-MSDU.
If GetPacketsForReceiver is called every time an aggregation occurs the
iterators are always valid.

But in this way code seems too complex :(
