Shouldn't matter, I think; the airtime scheduler tries to do its thing
in software. It does have to work around the firmware, to a certain
extent, though, which I suspect is why it doesn't work quite so well as
on ath9k.

Incidentally, this "impedance mismatch" between scheduler and firmware
is what this patch was supposed to fix:


Never did get around to respinning it, so not sure if it still applies.
If it does, you could try taking it for a spin; otherwise I can try
updating it so you can apply it and test :)
