Injection works in a limited fashion in my latest firmware.

I'd like to figure out how to pass rate-ctrl (and other info?) down to the
firmware on a per-pkt basis..but I don't see a way yet.

Probably I have to hack the htt header or something like that
to give some extra space.  That sort of thing might allow a host-based
rate-ctrl algorithm to be used....if someone is interested in working on
the driver/kernel side of things for this effort let me know.

I am not aware of any crashes related to monitor mode in my
firmware..but if you can crash it, send me the crash dump and
I'll take a look.
