This was previously sent to ath10k ML, now adding linux-wireless for
wider review.  Patch 3 gained a minor change since then to check for
raw mode feature flag from the firmware.

This patchset implements mesh support on ath10k.  There aren't many
changes required to the driver, now that most of the required raw-mode
support is upstream.

I've tested VHT multihop on openwrt with the appropriate patches

Regarding performance: I currently get about 75 Mbps with udp iperf
due to small aggregates, which leaves a lot to be desired.  Some users,
however, have reported 300+ Mbps [1], so this is potentially solvable.
