Yes, address filtering is needed for AACK support. I did not notice that
your chip supports AACK, please change your hw flags then to:

flags = IEEE802154_HW_OMIT_CKSUM | IEEE802154_HW_AACK;

The lqi value going to trash in the higher layers. But I need this value
for my future work with RPL.

mhh, there exist FFD and RFD 802.15.4 chips. FFD means full
function devices, which have coordinator support. The RFD are
reduced function devices, which have not coordinator support. But I
think your chip should support to run as coordinator. If your chip is a
RFD... then it's a little bit more complex. Because this callback is
only for FFD device and you can not simple return -EOPNOTSUPP in this
case. Maybe you changed coordinator behaviour and set short address/long
address/pan id. Then it would return -EOPNOTSUPP but setting of short
address/long address is supported.

Better forget this..., see above. :-)
