Did test it with an Compex WLE200NX 7A card (AR9280) running IBSS mode
against one older (madwifi) and one newer (ath10k) Atheros card using
ping and iperf traffic (investigating some performance degradation
compared to two older cards...., but getting better with the latest
rc80211_minstrel/rc80211_minstrel_ht changes), checked via printk
debugging intr_txqs is not cleared when entering ar9002_hw_get_isr(),
and checked wifi is still working after the change...., can provide more
info and/or debug traces if needed...
