Hi all,

According to Dave Täht the following code disables Airtime Fairness:

for i in /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy*/*/airtime_flags

echo 0 > $i

Wouldn't it be a good idea to ship Lede with ATF baked in, but disabled at
default? That would allow end-users to easily enable ATF. Since enabling
ATF takes some work, people without the knowledge wouldn't accidentally
enable this feature and run into possible instability issues. But at the
same time, this would enable tech savvy people to experiment.

There are reports of people running their networks with ATF enabled for
weeks with no issues whatsoever, so if there are instability issues it
might not be as widespread as one would think. There is an interesting
discussion going on here:

I'm curious to your thoughts!
