        for details see: https://lwn.net/Articles/705884/

        4.11 will have airtime fairness, also in that article. code landed in lede dec 24th.

        Some ath10k chips are semi-supported now. Work has come to a halt, on my front.

                  it seems a really excellent news.

                  By the way, this improvements will affect the pci latency timer of the pci version? How this new approach works?
