SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/6] ath9k: add a quirk to set use_msi automatically
Hi Christoph,

I'm okay with ether ways, but just worrying the regression if we
switch to use MSI by default.

Hi Daniel,

I've tried your patch, but it doesn't work for me.
Wifi can scan AP, but can't get connected.
It keeps showing

Do you have a chance to see if my patch works on your side?

Best regards,
