My bad, I fixed it in the SRPM but forgot to upload the renamed spec file. It
is there now.

Regarding the performance, there are a couple of other parameters that can be
set using iwpriv:

[root at macbook ~]# iwpriv wlan0
wlan0     Available private ioctls :
          set_leddc        (8BE0) : set   1 int   & get   0      
          set_vlanmode     (8BE1) : set   1 int   & get   0      
          set_pm           (8BE2) : set   1 int   & get   0 

Unfortunately I can't find *any* documentation on what any of these do, except
for vlanmode which was responsible for preventing ssh/telnet connections.

Maybe worth trying to change the others and see if they make any difference?
