ath10k mesh + ap + encryption?

we have done some experiments last week on ath10k, trying to run mesh 
(802.11s) and access point at the same time, both encrypted. 

We have tested a recent LEDE (reboot-1519-g42f559e) but with 
firmware-5.bin_10. and the included wpa_supplicant, which gave us a 
working encrypted 802.11s network. However, starting an AP at the same time 
didn't work (AP doesn't beacon). This wasn't a problem when 802.11s was 
running unencrypted.

We also tested version (from codeaurora), which is now default in 
LEDE. However, this version apparently doesn't support 11s mesh at all 
(WMI_SERVICE_MESH_11S is disabled in the service map, but cfg/mac80211 
advertises support).

So here are my questions:

 * Did anyone succesfully run AP and mesh, both encrypted at the same time?
 * Do you have any pointers how we could fix this? Could it be fixable in the 
driver (i.e. not in firmware)?
 * Does anyone have an idea if 11s will be supported in future versions? I 
didn't find any changelogs, but having 11s mode no longer in the service map 
does not make me optimistic.
