Sorry, missed this before -- the 'nwifi' mode which is the normal
datapath for ath10k discards the QoS header and following mesh header
when transmitting, if I recall correctly.  I also had some issues with the
received frames when using nwifi RX decap with raw mode TX, but I don't
recall exactly the problem.  I can retest with these modes if you really
want the details.
