    mac80211: Parse legacy and HT rate in injected frames
    Drivers/devices without their own rate control algorithm can get the
    information what rates they should use from either the radiotap header of
    injected frames or from the rate control algorithm. But the parsing of the
    legacy rate information from the radiotap header was removed in commit
    e6a9854b05c1 ("mac80211/drivers: rewrite the rate control API").
    The removal of this feature heavily reduced the usefulness of frame
    injection when wanting to simulate specific transmission behavior. Having
    rate parsing together with MCS rates and retry support allows a fine
    grained selection of the tx behavior of injected frames for these kind of
