Question on beacon-miss offloading.

In my ath10k CT firmware, I am disabling the beacon-miss offloading
to save space and because it will not work with lots of virtual

But, it must be that I need some way to tell the stack that this
feature is not enabled, because when suddenly kill my AP, then
the ath10k station connected to it shows endless 'beacon loss' events
in 'iw events' output, but it never actually loses connection.

Stock firmware works fine, so probably I just need to disable
some feature flag when registering the ath10k hardware
when using CT firmware.

With stock firmware, I see a quick dissassociation due to inactivity.

I am having poor luck finding how a driver tells the stack
it has beacon miss offload or not, so, does anyone know how
this is controlled?
