Thanks for the prompt reply.

How exactly do I enable WMI/MAC debugging?  I am a little new to this with ath10k.  Is this the correct way to do it (use the -d flag when running the firmware encoder script)?  Just want to be sure.

Can you enable WMI/MAC debugging when you load it up? Knowing which
command(s) it's sent before it does would be helpful.

It'd also be useful to know if it's something silly, like it thinking
it's a 2G device when QCA9888 is definitely 5G...
