Sigh. Pain shared, reduced, Joy shared, increased.

Corollary:  With enough pain shared, fixes can be found.

This will not be the first time I stepped too far off the bleeding
edge, nor the last.

I am still in search of *something* that will let me install an ath10k
and follow along on the wonderful results michal is getting on
fq_codel for wifi on that chipset.


I was tempted  to swap out for the ivy bridge box and tear apart the
nuc that I use as my main desktop to do it, but with the heat thing
being a potential problem also, reluctant.

/me goes searching for another board
