NetBSD sysctl convention is different. These parameters are under
I'm a little unclear about how tpscale & tpc work, btw. I know that
tpscale scales power levels on all channels. Experimenting the other

tpc enables/disables per-packet transmit power control. We don't have
the ifconfig-fu to control power.
