[Olsr-dev] mac80211 / ath9k / multicast-rate / ibss / adhoc / mesh

At the moment it is IMHO not possible to enforce
a multicast-rateset or even a simple fixed multicast-rate
with mac80211. So it is nearly impossible to build
a working mesh-network (olsr/batman) with mac80211 based
wifi-drivers. (because all protocols use packetloss
as index for link-cost/etx, but it has to be measured
the same way in the hole network, not with changing


When can we expect some work on "mrate" for mac80211?
Should i open a bounty somewhere?
