So, about IBSS.  Only ancient QCA firmware and 'CT' firmware supports IBSS as far as I know.

I was never able to get RSN to work with IBSS reliably in CT firmware, so it would have to be un-encrypted
traffic.  And, AMSDU + IBSS has hardware bugs, evidently, so firmware will disable AMSDU for you.

That said, adding a few more hacks for fake beacon ids might not make it any worse :)
