The sinfo->chains field is a bitmask for filled values in chain_signal
and chain_signal_avg, not a count. Treat it as such so that the driver
can properly report per-chain RSSI information.

Before (MIMO mode):

  $ iw dev wlan0 station dump
      ...
      signal: -51 [-51] dBm

After (MIMO mode):

  $ iw dev wlan0 station dump
      ...
      signal: -53 [-53, -54] dBm

This is a gentle ping to see if these two patches got lost. I was told 
on another mailing list recently that mail sent from my work address is 
finding its way into peoples' junk folders.

I will resend the patches in the near future if I don't see any response 
here.

Thanks,
Alvin

I just have been busy and heavily backlogged. The patches are in
patchwork, so no need to resend:

Great - thanks for the quick reply. I will not resend.

Kind regards,
