TX rate changes in a non-AP mode

realize that the hostap driver adapts TX rate. But the adaptation is
done only in the AP mode.
We are using the driver (3.7) in psuedo_ibss mode on a SMC 2532W-B
card. But we are still seeing that the TX rate changes. I understand
that the firmware may also adapt the rate. By looking at
"/proc/net/hostap/wlan0/debug", I confirmed that the firmware is not
in-charge of the rate control.
So what could be the reason behind the rate change? Could it be the
case that the firmware, even though it is not in-charge of the rate
control, changes the TX rate in pseudo_ibss mode?
