I think it might be something like a null-pointer exception, but those do not
create a clean backtrace. If you wanted to use my ath10k-ct driver, it can sometimes
gather additional info for these types of crashes that lets me know more about it.
But, if your problem is with backporting a driver anyway, maybe that is not
so much help.
If you could move forward to at least the 4.9 kernel, then likely you will have
better luck with the 9984.
