Trust me, I know the feeling :)

Sorry, not fully following your here. Are you saying that the problem is
that WCN3990/hw1.0/board-2.bin is missing board file for 'bus=snoc'?
That's easy to add, each board file within board-2.bin has multiple
names so we can easily select one board file for which we add

Sorry, not following you here either. Why would the driver need to use
board-id 67?

To me using just 'bus=snoc' is more logical than picking up an arbitrary
number. But I might be missing something here.
