Hi Bjørn,

I just compiled main with all your latest commits, as of 18:55 UTC today.
My report is the same as I sent by mail for 13-stable, about a week ago.

When it associates, it settles on:
	parent interface: iwlwifi0
	media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet OFDM/36Mbps mode 11a

Max transmit speed (iperf3 test) is only about 4.70Mbps.
Max receive speed (iperf3 -R) is 22.5Mbps.

For comparison, using the iwm driver gets 22.5Mbps in both directions.

Other end is an ath0 device running in 11na mode.

Happy to test more.  And, thanks.
