Hi all,

According to Dave Täht the following code disables Airtime Fairness:

for i in /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phy*/*/airtime_flags

echo 0 > $i

Wouldn't it be a good idea to ship Lede with ATF baked in, but
disabled at default? That would allow end-users to easily enable ATF.
Since enabling ATF takes some work, people without the knowledge
wouldn't accidentally enable this feature and run into possible
instability issues. But at the same time, this would enable tech savvy
people to experiment.

There are reports of people running their networks with ATF enabled
for weeks with no issues whatsoever, so if there are instability
issues it might not be as widespread as one would think. There is an
interesting discussion going on here:

I'm curious to your thoughts!
