I guess an alternative is to initialize to 0, that would count any rx
packets whose hw rate we don't know about as the base rate, so it would
probably bias the RC to 1mb, but this is already one of those 'should
never happen' cases. Also I can't forsee having a rate index > 127 so
changing the sign is pretty low risk.
