True, though reading that just tells me that it's not supposed to work at
all. I'm running firmware 6.04, which doesn't have the IBSS Ad-Hoc mode. The
other end is running 7.x so maybe there is some interoperability possible.

I'm thinking of upgrading the firmware but see no indication of whether
that's possible in linux.
