Now I had a chance to monitor it, and in so doing, rediscovered this patch of

In fact my broadcasts were truncated and the above change makes the broadcast
ARPs look correct over the air.  The (non-ath10k) target mesh STA replies with
broadcast PREQ but that is not received / processed / replied-to by the
ath10k device.

Perhaps there is a BSSID filter enabled or something like that (in mesh
there's no BSSID, just individual addresses on group addressed frames).
