Ok, I have this working again against the latest driver, including that
patch -- I don't think anything was wrong with it, just didn't have both
raw tx and decap set properly and had some baggage from the original
patch to jettison.

Still a bit WIP but this patchset against openwrt r46584 seems to work
for me:

The mac80211 bits (except for VHT) are upstream but openwrt doesn't have
them yet.

(BTW thanks to Cococorp for sending me a few APs to make testing a lot easier!)
