i seems that '/lib/netifd/wireless/mac80211.sh' sets
the default distance to '0' if not defined via uci.

what does that mean? dynamic ack or not?
because 0 seems to be a valid value:

root at box:~ iw phy phy0 set distance
Usage:  iw [options] phy <phyname> set distance <auto|distance>

Enable ACK timeout estimation algorithm (dynack) or set appropriate
coverage class for given link distance in meters.
To disable dynack set valid value for coverage class.
Valid values: 0 - 114750

bye, bastian
