I just noticed that it's not included in the athstats API. You can use
the sysctl debugging call:

sysctl dev.ath.0.txagg=1

If you see the aggregate frame counters go up, it's working.

I'm just updating the athstats program and ath driver to log TX
aggregate statistics.
Give me about 10 minutes and then do an update.

Ok. I'll go and investigate what that option once did and see if I can
dig up the code.
