The autocast packet handling does not fit the model. I already
excluded it from parts of the patchset. I might need to exclude it
from more. It is something i need to understand more. I did find a
leaked data sheet for the qca8337, but i've not had time to read it
yet.

Either the model needs to change a bit, or we don't convert this part
of the code to use shared functions, or maybe we can do a different
implementation in the driver for statistics access.
