    ath5k: configure backoff for IBSS beacon queue · 6d91e1d8

    in "11.1.2.2 Beacon generation in an IBSS" the IEEE802.11 standard says, each
    STA should... "b) Calculate a random delay uniformly distributed in the range
    between zero and twice aCWmin × aSlotTime,".
    
    configure cwmin and cwmax of the beacon queue in IBSS mode according to this.
    unfortunately beacon backoff does not work reliably yet, so i suspect we have a
    problem somewhere else, since the same settings (and similar beacon timer
    configuration) work for madwifi.
