I note I tested the linksys AC1900 the other night. It worked quite
well. Will argue the mvneta driver needs BQL.

C) babeld-1.6.0 is stablizing. After/during that...

work is needed to remove the current split between babels and babeld,
and I would love full procd support, but  don't know how to get there
from here.

B) dnsmasq has had several nasty bugs exposed in the last few weeks.

1) all versions with dnssec support break now that cloudflare is
signing a domain with
a CNTRL-Cxxx.cloudflare.org

This among other things, breaks www.ietf.org (starting the week that
ietf met, sigh)

It turns out a CNTRL-C in DNS is legal (WTF?), but dnsmasq dnssec
fails to validate due to prematurely not liking this domain.

We havent found anyone at cloudflare with IQ points yet that can fix
it, and this is so obviously a misconfiguration on their part. Even
then, the right answer is to allow that domain, and filter out the
evil octet in the logger where it belongs.

Fixed in dnsmasq-2.73rc3 and later. This fix is a candidate for a
backport into BB.

2) fixed: issues with breakage with DS records

This fix is also a candidate for BB.

3) There has been a long standing nearly impossible to reproduce
runaway on native ipv6
     in particular, that takes days to induce. I am ramping up a huge
number of boxes
     to try and pound it flat enough to find. Maybe it is gone
already. Dunno. This week,

C) I have no intent to get cake into chaos calmer anytime, and
probably not in time for the release at all.

Too much work remains. Found a bug in either the scheduler or codel
part yesterday in particular, but lots more analysis and tuning left
to do.

My last test had the hostapd issue still existing (80mbit/sec
forwarding speed loss).

It was against  r45228. (I have frozen against that while other issues
got resolved)

Documented here. Gave you the strace already.

On yer side:

Getting anywhere with per-sta queuing on the ath9k?

Minstrel-blues? (been trying to get ahold of thomas for a month now...)
