I am trying to figure out why neither ath9k nor ath10k IBSS RSN
interfaces are advertising block-ack features in their beacons
(or probe responses).

I found this rather questionable piece of code while grepping
around....maybe supplicant just doesn't support this sort
of thing properly at present?

static int supp_get_beacon_ie(void *ctx)
        struct ibss_rsn_peer *peer = ctx;

        wpa_printf(MSG_DEBUG, "SUPP: %s", __func__);
        /* TODO: get correct RSN IE */
        return wpa_sm_set_ap_rsn_ie(peer->supp,
                                    (u8 *) "\x30\x14\x01\x00"
                                    "\x00\x00", 22);
