I've just uploaded the latest beta-15 firmware build.

It has a few fixes related to rate-ctrl, and it can also
transmit on a Monitor interface now.  The monitor TX packets
are all sent out at 1Mbps encoding rate currently (though
a better use of radiotap might give up to 6Mbps, perhaps),
and all 3 of the MAC addresses in the ieee80211 header
are that of the Monitor device.

I think if someone cared it would be easy enough to
make the driver add real peers to the Monitor device,
but I'm not sure what good that would do.

And, some day, maybe there could be a way to pass rate-ctrl
info to the firmware so that you could specific particular

The firmware has a few hacks that should let this feature work
on an un-patched driver, I think.  I was testing on my 4.0.4
kernel, however.
