[Make-wifi-fast] wifi airtime fairness patches could use eyeballs and testing

I am aware that a performance regression with using fq in mac80211 with 
multiple tcp streams has been reported, and this patch in lede disables it.


Has that been resolved?

Also, would it work if I removed the 220-fq_disable_hack.patch from 
mac80211 in lede and applied those patches for airtime fairness,

Thank you,
