It should work without NSS as well, but it looks like there may be a
bug that without the NSS FW networking speeds are really low.
That is something I need to test further, but another issue is that
the wired driver is pretty bad without offloading, it has a non-NSS
but the throughput is rather bad as it only uses one set of interrupts
and hogs the CPU0.
It also fakes the switch ports as netdevs and thus breaks the FDB and
roaming, so it is the usual QCA mess.
