Yes, in the meantime we have made some performance improvements.
Currently the throughput numbers are approx.:
TX: 30Mbit/s
RX: 20Mbit/s

I have seen RX and TX throughputs of up to 50Mbit/s on my RTL8822CS,
but I cannot reliably reproduce this (meaning: if I don't touch my
board and run the same iperf3 test again then in one run it may
achieve 50Mbit/s, but in the next run only 25Mbit/s).
In other words: throughput is much better than what we started with in
summer, but I think it can be improved further.

I also got feedback off-list from a user who used the patches from
this series on top of the out-of-tree rtw88-usb driver. These patches
fix one "scheduling while atomic" issue for him as well.
Maybe you can do your extensive tests after I sent v3 of this series?
Also thanks for offering to test this, I don't have any Realtek PCIe
wifi, so I am unable to verify I broke anything myself.

Best regards,
