Probably because nobody suitable hardware at hand could review and test
the patches. Probably it'd be better to first add the basic device
bring-up and then add 11ad support.

I'd also love to see this getting merged!

Please resend the patches rebased on master and add your Tested-by:
tag and I will merge them.
Imho review doesn't need to be done by core developers, but without
any public review/testing nobody will dare to blindly merge.
Maybe we should establish more of a culture to encourage also people
without commit rights to reply to patches adding Acked-by and Tested-by
