I use more recent (and hacked) kernels/drivers, and my own wave-1 firmware. I did have
a bug in some code I wrote because the 48Mbps rate code is '0x0', and some of
my code was ignoring it thinking it was not properly set. I did see correct
on-air 48Mbps encoding rates though.
Possibly you have similar problems with rate-code 0x0.
Have you tried doing a capture with an ath9k or some other non-ath10k driver
to see if it is really 24Mbps on air?

Setting the tx rate through normal API will not effect management frames, and at the beginning of
the connection, perhaps no data frames have been sent/received yet, so you would
see 6Mbps reported.
