Subject: [PATCH 4/7] batman-adv: ELP - use wifi tx bitrate as fallback throughput

From: René Treffer <treffer@...site.de>

Some wifi drivers (e.g. ath10k) provide per-station rx/tx values but no
estimated throughput. Setting a better estimate than the default 1 MBit
makes these devices work well with B.A.T.M.A.N. V.
