If you feel adventurous, and want to apply some of my ath10k patches,
I have a way to dump some of the interesting registers in CT firmware,
including the rx-filter register.

Maybe I can figure out what needs to be twiddled w/out having to add
a monitor device.

I could also potentially add a vdev type or flag for mesh interface,
but that would definitely require driver hacks to enable the new
flag and it would not be compatible with other upstream firmware.
