My simple pushback has basically been that if you wanted your wifi
chip to stay competitive with qualcomm, you needed to implement
something like "ending the anomaly". It was kind of my hope that mgmt
at multiple wifi firms would get scared enough to go resource
engineers doing that (with or without our help), and wifi would
improve for everyone dramatically.

I like competition and races for excellence.

I don't care if it ends up in the firmware or (with sufficient stats
coming out of the firmware), in the mac80211 layer. I wish we could
have produced a bsd-licensed version, but I like to think the paper's
clear enough, and the benchmarks, also.

I wish(ed) I could go fiddle a bit more with ax and ac, as there are
some good air stats underused as yet. I really wished to find a
android wifi interface worth hacking on.

but I'm done here, gotta do something else.
