ACK timeouts: done in firmware or software?

I just read this paper, which I saw mentioned in a mail to the NoCat
list. I'm doing a rural WISP thing where this might be the eventual
path to nirvana, if I'm reading it right. Maybe it's old news.
I'm not aware enough to know whether I should assume that my
drivers--HostAP and Agere's AP-1000 bins--currently only wait for a SIFS
period before giving up on an ACK. If that's what it is could I change
it to length DIFS instead and thereby gain the benefit they posit?
