Not only this one, to make the picture complete. For example, another
relevant issue is:

from rc.conf:

ifconfig_wi1="inet w.x.y.z/m ssid A mediaopt hostap channel 4 up"

reality ?

# ifconfig wi1
        media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect <hostap> (DS/2Mbps
        status: associated
        authmode OPEN privacy OFF txpowmax 100 dtimperiod 1 bintval 100

It has never reached more than DS/2Mbps in hostap mode.

... and other issue is about transmit power limit, no chance to limit tx,
txpowmax does not work at all. Card transmits at full power.

I know from my friend there exists some patch for the first issue, but CVS
does not contain it even in 7-CURRENT, let alone 6-STABLE.
