There's no explicit control over Rx filters in ath10k that I know of.
This is abstracted away by other firmware higher-level commands. One
way to influence Rx filter (and BSSID mask) is to start a monitor vdev
in firmware. This apparently works[1] but 636 will crash on you again
if you do that. You'll need Ben's CT firmware.
