You are correct that the patch talked about on this website is about performance.

However, from the brief scan of the article, posts and patch content, I saw no evidence it is in any way related to disabling Atheros EEPROM domain restrictions.

What's more, as I understand things, disabling/ignoring Atheros domain restrictions can never be part of kernel, because it is against regulations, or "illegal" for the lack of better word. And Linux kernel cannot contain illegal code.

Therefore, I don't think it has anything to do with what my package here is about. As I see it, our best hope is to wait for OpenWrt devs to develop a version of this patch compatible with recent kernels. But as they are stuck on 4.4 (or something similar), and seeing that they not only ignored, but even deleted my suggestion to do so from their github (https://github.com/CreatorDev/openwrt/issues/146#issuecomment-252172435), I don't see this happening anytime soon.

Check also under the Result section where the developer talks about witch patches he had use for the test.

Those two at the bottom,

from second at the bottom
The mac80211 patches will be in Linux 4.9, and the patch to ath9k to use it should go into 4.10. So until then, you'll have to patch your kernel yourself if you want to use it

from last post

and the same patch you have

I struggle with not to find my 5ghz channel and i just saw that blog when searching for athk9.

I just scimming thrue the blog and what i understand,the first patch should give better performance?? and the other find 2.4/5ghz channel.

and your comment from here.
Atheros domain patch is not compatible with kernels above 4.6.

But if you use that patch 321-ath9k-Add-a-per-station-airtime-deficit-scheduler.patch, should do so we can use 402-ath_regd_optional.patch for 4.8 ?? or do i completely missunderstanding the blog :)

@freddie, what comment do you mean, specifically?

freddie commented on 2016-11-06 19:20

Out of date?
