The FQ-CoDel'ed queues should provide the same benefit for adhoc mode
(and is in LEDE mainline already). The airtime scheduler has not
received a lot of testing, but it just works against all stations
visible to a node, so in principle it should work on adhoc. Code for
that is in my git repo, here: https://kau.toke.dk/git/lede/
