Yes, I was talking about that patch (which I didn't find on the mailing list - 
so a link would be helpful). QCA is gathering a lot of patches (a00-*) at 
which are often not upstreamed. The patch 
a00-0075-ath10k-Add-support-to-parse-per-station-tx-stats-for.patch is the one 
which is receiving the TX statistics stuff from 10.2.

I had a discussion with some QCA employee (or actually OpenMesh had it and I 
joined the discussion rather late) where the QCA employee was very confident 
that ath10k supports ATH10K_PKTLOG_PEER_STATS (not the fw_stats stuff in 
debugfs). But I couldn't find the code for that in ath10k. Only after some 
guesswork, I was able to find the patch mentioned above and was able to test 
it (after hacking the smart antenna patch dependency away).

Kind regards,
