Ok, this means:
- the ralink rate control algorithm is not part of the firmware /
hardware and thus cannot be used (directly) by rt2x00.
- rt2x00 probably uses minstrel? Is minstrel able to optimally support
the needs of ralinks hardware?
Background: Is the presumption correct, that ralink might possibly
cover some quirks of there hardware with an aligned algorithm?
