TI's WiLink driver might behave oddly and simply have bugs in it's wext
interface. I strongly recommend to use the proper upstream driver

In the long run you will save a lot of trouble. For example, it will
work with wpasupplicant and connman out of box, thanks to mac80211
stack. Out-of-tree drivers are always pain, avoid them like the plague.
