[Make-wifi-fast] openwrt: some messy rpm vs ookla vs waveform vs rrul tests

The WiFi testing matrix is huge. My only help is to publish iperf 2 and
pyflows as open source <https://sourceforge.net/projects/iperf2/>. There
are ways to build test rigs using programmable attenuators and variable
phase shifters, splitters, combiners etc. Then use statistical process
controls (SPC) to automate monitoring for anomalies and regressions. It's a
lot of sw work and each test rig costs a lot of money. I find this level of
testing is typically beyond to scope of "free and voluntary labor."

I'd agree that there are likely many poorly behaving devices.
