Yeah, you are not the only one using ath10k with linux-backports.
Ideally we should have our own "backports-ath10k" which contains latest
and greatest ath10k from my master tree. This would be really handy for
debugging problems and verifying bug fixes, but I don't see any way to
find time for that right now :/

Yeah, I wasn't expecting master branch to contain any fixes to your
issues. This was more like a generic comment.
