this configuration sends 1000 broadcast packets at 1 megabit to device ath0 with ethertype 0x9000 inf_src :: InfiniteSource(DATA \<ffff>, LIMIT 1000, ACTIVE false) -> EtherEncap(0x9000, ath0, ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff) -> wifi_encap :: WifiEncap(0x00, 0:0:0:0:0:0) -> set_rate :: SetTXRate(RATE 2) -> ExtraEncap() -> to_dev :: ToDevice (ath0);
