That is the sanest 802.11e queue behavior I have ever seen! (at both
6 and 300mbit! in the ath10k patched mac test)
It would be good to add a flow to this test that exercises the VI
queue (CS5 diffserv marking?), and to repeat this test with wmm
disabled for comparison.
Let's go make home routers and wifi faster! With better software!
