Maybe add a CLI command or similar to re-enable the high
rates for those not interested in using dbus?
Also, it looks like this steps on any previous available-rates
selection logic in supplicant? It would be nice if this
code took the configured rate settings into account,
having the logic in this patch never enable rates
