Warning message in bridge mode

Hi Ben,
Can you create a firmware that is the same as 10.1.467-2-1 but include your fix for promiscuous mode?
I would like to do the test of rate in bridge network to see if the performance is better or not.
But as your firmware contain other commit that might make the rate slower so I would like to ask you could create
this version of firmware.
Thanks in advance,

We have done some tests recently on E5 3.7Ghz systems (ie, top-end-ish server systems)
that can push 800+Mbps UDP, but can't recall if that is upload or download.

We need to re-run tests and publish the info.

Looks like host CPU is very important to higher-speeds with ath10k.  I did a perf top
months ago, and there was bad contention on a spinlock or two in ath10k driver, so that
is probably much of the performance problems we see.
