Not sure of that yet. There's one more thing that is on my TODO list on powersaving,
namely to not go to sleep if there are still active entries in the TX queues. This is
also done by the legacy, so we should check for that as well. The only issue is how to
make the device go to sleep once the TX queues are empty, as mac80211 will not inform
us again that we need to sleep.
