[OpenWrt-Devel] mac80211/DFS-support default since r42431

with r42431 DFS is enabled by default[1]:

"mac80211: enable DFS support for ath9k/10k by default The DFS pattern
detector now supports all three regions; ETSI, FCC and JP, so there is
no reason to not have it enabled anymore."

there was a long discussion on battlemesh/Leipzig[2] that this
is from a security point of view a difficult thing - because everybody
can take down a complete city-network.

I'am unsure about the decision:
a) selfbuilders can disable it
b) it changes the default behaviour

what do you think about it?

bye, bastian
