I did some work on that but didn't finish nor publish it.

I just dug around my git repo and found something. I can't remember if
it was this exactly what I used in the "100 station" thingy[1][2] or
not. Attached.

Feel free to play around it if you want. It should provide fairness
but will degrade peak performance due to delayed firmware aggregation
introducing extra idling latency and the naive design.

You'll most likely need to rebase it.
