If you are able to verify the difference by the air capture, please
refer to You should see more than 1
packet aggregated and sent from your wifi adapter's mac address, and
get the block ack response from the Access Point (also shown in the
image). If TX aggregation is not enabled, you will only see 1 tx
packet from your wifi, and get an ack right after from the AP.

Please also help test if there's any possible regression. Thanks so much.
