Promissing indeed, because this might draw some attention to the need
to provide the now missing TX rate control for injection.
Hence this wifibroadcast project uses patched firmware and/or drivers
to force transmission at a fixed bitrate -- it'd be much better if
injection mode had a proper way for the transmitter to drive
rate-control in software. Other projects (such as GNUnet...) would
also greatly benefit from that...
Having more wild groth (and even ugly things like firmware patches)
does provide a good argument for having support for RADIOTAP_MCS,
RADIOTAP_VHT, RADIOTAP_XChannel... in mac80211 also for TX injection.
Previously setting the legacy bitrate (up to 54MBit/s single-stream
with 20MHz channel width) was supported via the RADIOTAP_RATE header,
but even that was dropped a long time ago...
