Good point.

If this patch is to be propagated to stable the patch(set) needs some
adjustments to avoid conflicts. Right now the patch touches a place
that was introduced with "ath10k: move htt rx processing to worker" so
the offending patch hunk should be moved to that patch.

Actually the "ath10k: make the workqueue multithreaded" could also be
a candidate for stable as it fixes AP beaconing during heavy TX
traffic. I should've mentioned that in the commit log.

I'll resend an updated patchset later today.
