+ * a particular chain are disabled this chain should be disabled) and if
+ * a chain has diversity antennas wether diversity should be used or not.
+ * HT capabilities (STBC, TX Beamforming, Antenna selection) can be
+ * derived from the available chains after applying the antenna mask.
+ * Non-802.11n drivers can derive wether to use diversity or not.
+ * Drivers may reject configurations or RX/TX mask combinations they cannot
