It's a bit strange to ask questions about linux driver in
freebsd-wireless mailing list. Just in case, there are two mailing
lists for ath9k: ath9k-devel and linux-wireless.

If you need a round-trip-time: take a tx timestamp from tx-complete
descriptor of data frame, then take a timestamp from received ACK
frame and then compute the time. To get received ACK frames from NIC
you should enable control frames receiving in Rx filter. If you need
more details about descriptor format or time of timestamp capture,
then may be Adrian could help.

BTW, a month ago or so, Lorenzo Bianconi added a dynamic ACK timeout
estimation to the ath9k, based exactly on round-trip-time computation.
