Do you mean probe requests or probe responses?

A single hardware scan request with lots of ssids in it will utilize all
firmware tx management frames (which is 5, it seems).  In my testing, the
firmware would just never send probe requests for the rest of the ssids
because the firmware scan state machine logic is broken.

If you really do mean responses, then it sounds like it would be better to
use the normal RX path for mgt frames in the firmware...
