It's to do with the RF Filter. Ath9k needs to be aware that it
exists.. I see logic within ath9k that drives RF filters, I just don't
know how to make ath9k aware of the RF Filter. Are there some EEPROM
bits that can be toggled to enable this too? If these bits exist,
could they be toggled via regidx/regval? I have no experience with RF
Filters, Ubiquiti decided to put them on the Outdoor+ :-)
Dmesg shows the radio as an ar928x, perhaps we should drop the
question to Adrian or Felix in the ath9k mailing list?
