It should be possible, somehow.  I just pushed a git commit that
implements the WDS Get Channel Rates request.

But devices I tested (Huawei E397 and Pantech UML290) report bogus
values for the current rates, eg for the UML290 on EDGE:

Channel data rates:
	Current TX rate: 4294967295bps (its all 0xFF in the TLV)
	Current RX rate: 4294967295bps
	Max TX rate:     17200bps
	Max RX rate:     25600bps

There's also a WDS Event indication for current rates, but it would
take more than 20 minutes to see if that works better than

I might be able to poke a bit more next week.
