I disagree. The point of linux-stable is _not_ that we send all possible
fixes to stable. Instead we should send fixes only which really matter
to users and for which we have received bug reports. I haven't yet seen
any fix for ath10k which should be a candidate for stable releases.

If we start sending all ath10k fixes to stable it's just extra churn for
both Greg and people working on ath10k.
