The later is called HFA384x_RID_CNFAUTHRSPTIMEOUT in linux-wlan-ng.  I
guess it's "authentication responce timeout", whatever it is.  I don't see
it in cards with 1.7.1 firmware.  Perhaps it's specific to tertiary

The former two are present in secondary firmware, but I have no idea what
they are for.  They probably described in some documents distributed under
an NDA.

HFA384X_RID_CNFTXCONTROL is 0x0200 for me.  Perhaps it's a bitmask.
HFA384X_RID_CNFMMLIFE is 0xFDE8 (65000).  This looks a timeout for
