Correct me if I'm wrong but that would require tx completions to
include tx retry information and a way to setup tx retries.

I recall there's a WMI command to control tx retries in 10.1 but I
think the WMI service bitmap doesn't indicate it as enabled (at least
in official firmware binaries) so I guess it's just a no-op now.
There's also HTT pktlog which is able to deliver tx descriptors to the
host but these aren't public.
