Ok but that requires driver specific support and it's only implemented
on a subset of currently available drivers.

This at least makes the basic tx/rx indication capability a better.

Ok, I guess you are referring to the this:

+ led_trigger_blink_oneshot(local->tx_led,
+ &led_delay, &led_delay, 0);

So, are you definitely rejecting this patch or should I fix indentation
and send a v2?
