Did you get any feedback from QCA? Our requests regarding registration of two 
own bmi-board-ids for our product were always answered (slightly simplified) 
with "don't change the BDF files", "always use board-2.bin from driver/
firmware" and "ask your ODM". This basically didn't help us and didn't answer 
the question and creates quite a big problem for us because the ODM insists 
that we should use his BDF [1] files with modifications [tm]. We just found 
out that the ODM used a modified version of the DK04.1 BDF files but used the 
bmi-board-id's for the AP-DK01.1-C1 - so we still have a long road ahead.

We are still trying to get more information. But I though that I could ask you 
in the meantime whether you had more success and have a status update.

Kind regards,

[1] According to QCA, the BDF files are just the single board files inside
    the board-2.bin
