[Battlemesh] Airtime fairness also available for ad-hoc

Following Dave and others work on Wifi-fast, airtime fairness seems to
be available for ad-hoc (their focus was on the AP mode, which is
bringing a massive improvement for latency according to the slides):


That would be great to make a test before/after the patch just for the
ad-hoc case.

There is an article on LWN, but behind paywall:


"Dave Täht has been working to save the Internet for the last six
years (at least). Recently, his focus has been on improving the
performance of networking over WiFi — performance that has been
disappointing for as long as anybody can remember. The good news, as
related in his 2016 Linux Plumbers Conference talk, is that WiFi can
be fixed, and the fixes aren't even all that hard to do. Users with
the right hardware and a willingness to run experimental software can
have fast WiFi now, and it should be available for the rest of us
before too long."

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
