There was already a similar report[1]. Just for the record: what
number of interrupts did you have before 4.2-rc3? I assume it was "pci
irq msi interrupts 1 irq_mode 0 reset_mode 0".

My suspicion is that either the firmware is buggy and doesn't play
well with multiple MSI interrupts or the MSI interrupt behaviour
changed significantly (compared to qca988x) and this remained hidden
because not an awful lot of machines seemed to have provided more than
1 msi interrupt for ath10k.
