There are some features in this firmware that give me some hope, now,
for make-wifi-fast on an 802.11ac platform.


"Optimized tx-credits handling. Host driver can configure maximum
tx-credits and firmware will return credits immediately so less
flush-mgmt hacks are needed on host.

Supports reporting tx-rate to the sending stack.

Supports configuring the firmware tx-buffer count below 1024."

I dug my archer C7 v2 out of a box (which as best as I remember, has
an ath10k in it) and darn it, cant find the power supply.


Also, minstrel-blues is looking promising and I hope it lands in
mainline shortly. I am really not up to doing a full cerowrt-like
release of anything for general use, but I actually did do a build and
test it on a wndr3800 - am very impressed with the forwarding rates I
got out of 3.18, minstrel-blues appears to work, and darn it, where
the heck is the power supply for this tp-link thingi....
