Thanks, all three patches applied. In patch 3 I just changed the
firmware version in commit log to as that one has the raw
mode feature flag enabled.

I also tested this myself and I was able to join to a mesh network I
created with ath9k and ping each other. In case someone cherry picks
these patches please take into account that these patches need quite a
few recent mac80211 patches from mac80211-next. The patches are also in
wireless-testing and ath.git master branch. Safest is to test with
ath.git master branch.
