Nope. I went single channel for the yurtlab backbone in part because I
wanted "hardware flow control" (the 100Mbit ethernet connected to a
300Mbit radio) to work and to be able to look at what the
"microqueues" in the ethernet driver formed by packet de-aggregation
did under fq_codel.

Doing it all in one box with (nonexistent) software flow control
between 2.4ghz, 5ghz, and gigE ethernet in a single unit - seemed
likely to do nothing more than pass bursts of packets around. I like
the software-fq-on-de-aggregation idea I talked about a week or so
back, but haven't done anything about it.

I'd thought hard about using the http://www.ubnt.com/rspro rather than
the netgears at one point, but thought the BOM would put people off,
and at the price tag for a full box, there seemed to be several x86
alternatives, and either way, we ended up with no micro queues to
break up.

A typical configuration at the yurtlab is two nano station M5s and a
single omni 2HP.
