mt7615 actually doesn't use in-band RSSI for signal calculation, but it
occurs to me that i should modify the code to compare per-chain's
signal. Something like this:

		status->chain_signal[0] = to_rssi(MT_RXV4_RCPI0, rxdg3);
		status->chain_signal[1] = to_rssi(MT_RXV4_RCPI1, rxdg3);
		status->chain_signal[2] = to_rssi(MT_RXV4_RCPI2, rxdg3);
		status->chain_signal[3] = to_rssi(MT_RXV4_RCPI3, rxdg3);
		status->signal = status->chain_signal[0];

		switch (status->chains) {
		case 0xf:
			status->signal = max(status->signal,
					     status->chain_signal[3]);
		case 0x7:
			status->signal = max(status->signal,
					     status->chain_signal[2]);
		case 0x3:
			status->signal = max(status->signal,
					     status->chain_signal[1]);
			break;
		default:
			break;
		}


I could send a v2 or you can take care of that.
