IMHO Robert’s patch addresses an actual bug in ath10k whereby the driver sends the same devpath for two different devices when requesting board-1 BDF, which doesn’t seem right.

Your proposal is less straightforward than using unmodified board-1 data (as could be done if the above bug did not occur) and negates the previous efforts not to store this data on flash (using instead the kernel’s documented firmware sysfs loading facility - again possible without the above issue).
