Refresh of mac80211 drivers

The Wireless Overview page of the wiki says: "Wireless drivers are pulled on a more or less regular basis from wireless-testing with the OpenWrt-patches not mainlined yet being adjusted"

However the last time this was done was November 2017, nearly eleven months ago:

Would it be possible to get the drivers updated from wireless-testing, if that's still the intended approach? I looked into it myself but it's not clear how backports-2017-11-01.tar.xz was generated and how a new one should be created.

A mac80211 update based upon kernel 4.18 is expected to hit master later today.
