The thing is - this parameters I've got from hostapd.conf on my host
machine and due to comments they are strictly set from 802.11. As for
hostapd itself, I don't gone in deep inspection of WMM part but I saw
some default values regarding tx_queue* parameters (according to
comments this section is used to prioritize traffic from AP to STAs,
and WMM part is in opposite direction, in my oppinion last one is also
used to determine WMM capable stations which gives us such speed
improvements) in source code of hostapd, maybe there's some analogue
for WMM but somehow it don't get applied when configuration file
loaded. So for now the easiest and fast way to fix this is to set
config with parameters that hostapd expects.
