OK, firstly I followed Vladimir's idea to invert the reported signal
strength and quality.  This seemed to make sense as we were getting 20%
signal strength under Linux, against 84% under Windows.

I then applied the two patches you sent.  This then gave me a drop in
the reported signal strength by ~20%.

Can you explain what the patches are actually doing?  And perhaps any
other values I might try to tweak the signal any more?

Do you have access to datasheets for this card?
