I get the mac address from board.bin. If i understand OTP correct, it 
should instead use the Mac Adress from
OTP. My guess is that the OTP Memory on that device is simply not 
programmed, so it falls back to board.bin.
Is my assumption correct? On system without programmed OTP, shouldn't 
ath10k start up and simply fall back
to board.bin instead of bailing out?

I'm not sure if i really unterstood how otp and board.bin relates to 
each other now. ;)
