Late reply, sorry.

I've just did a quick test on 10.2 (both AP and STA) with WPA2.
Apparently the raw tx mode requires IV to be set up on host and packet
length (reported in HTT Tx command header) must be re-adjusted
differently, otherwise frames are broken (incorrect FCS, too long,
somewhat encrypted except LLC/SNAP). The best I could get were
FCS-correct undecryptable frames on air. Perhaps someone will figure
that out..

Another way around this would be to perform software crypto for tx
entirely on host.
