Adding OpenWrt support for Xiaomi AX3600 (Part 1)

@MacManas would you (or somebody else in this thread) mind doing some wifi measurements that are similar to https://github.com/openwrt/mt76/issues/709#issuecomment-1319445455? There have been reports of wifi ax being worse than wifi ac in same location and distance: 802.11ax worse than 802.11ac with mt76 driver?. We are trying to find out if it is purely limited to Mediatek driver and software or if other drivers and hardware experience the same phenomenon.

In general, it would be great to have precise measurements. E.g. a Markdown formated table that features following information:

  1. info about hardware and software (e.g. version of OpenWRT) of all involved devices (both client and server)
  2. Signal strength received in dBm (Example). E.g. with Wifianalyzer
  3. Info from speedtests using Iperf3 or Iperf2 (How to ).
  4. Very Important: Comparison of same location and same devices with different protocols (e.g. AX vs AC vs N) and different drivers/firmware/versions of OpenWRT or original software. (Example)
  5. Comparison of different distances (Example)
  6. Comparison of different layers of obstacles (e.g. walls) (Example)
  7. Device configuration, especially in case you have good results with your wifi and think it works very well.
