You can hack around it to make it work, but the basic problem is the
Atheros MAC only supports one mode at a time - AP or STA or IBSS.

When doing mesh you want to synchonise TSF different to when you're in STA mode.

The Linux guys have ath9k doing AP+mesh and STA+mesh, for various
values of "works". I haven't personally tried it but I've heard
reports that it does work. Again, for various values of "work". :-)

You could give it a try and spend the extra time making all of the
802.11s quirks work; then figure out what other quirky behaviour
happens when you're also in AP or STA mode. I don't have the time to
sit down and solve whatever issues do creep up when doing mesh + other
VAPs, sorry.
