I've asked about this before since a 'testmode' was added to ath10k
several months ago, but was pretty much shot down. However, there's a
nifty tool called wperf ( that might
accomplish what you're after. I've yet to try it, but it does seem
promising since you'll hopefully be able to use UDP traffic to inject
frames into the air, though I'm not sure how the firmware will react.
