This seems to have been a fluke as I'm back to getting kernel panics
on a vanilla 4.9 kernel with the firmware from kernel.org. The panic
looks the same as before. Reception is still good.

I'm not sure it's relevant, but I'm connecting the card via a M.2 to
mini PCIe adapter. I've tried multiple adapters and with multiple
cards, and the adapters themselves seem to be working okay.

I do misunderstand the output: *#{ AP, mesh point, P2P-GO } <= 1*. Derp.
