Isn't this supposed to be done automatically by the rate control
modules? Seems pretty wrong to have it done via a sysfs file. If the
maemo code was twiddling the TX rate for management frames so that it
could get more reliable DHCP or 802.1x, we have better nl80211
mechanisms for that now.

Also, the patch description is wrong. This doesn't really add support
for "configuring reg domains" at all.
