Right, but you're likely seeing a different issue to "hardware TXQ is stuck."

I think we've solved that. What we're likely seeing now is some odd
buffer exhaustion issues that I haven't yet seen in the driver. -HEAD
is supposed to be limiting how many ath_buf's are queued  per node
_just_ so this particular issue doesn't occur. But it sounds like this
isn't entirely working.

Now, as for the rate related stuff - yes, MCS15 is actually giving
high (99-100%) success rates. But it may not be transmitting MCS15
very often. How busy is the air? Compile up athsurvey and run that
whilst you're doing a test.

I'm going to tidy up the transmit path a little more before I start
working on trying to diagnose why you're seeing the behaviour you are.
But we'll get to it, I promise.

If you see any other transmit queue stuck issues then please let me
know. I want high confidence that we've solved those before I move
onto the next stuff.

Thanks for all your patience!
