Do you have any more info what type of board it is? Is it CUS223, XBNNN
(N being a decimal) or something else?

What's the chip id?

Is that with stock ath10k driver or does ath10k contain any custom

Hmm, I wonder if otp.bin fails. Can you check what result code you get
from otp.bin? Add something like this to ath10k_download_and_run_otp():

	ret = ath10k_bmi_execute(ar, address, &exec_param);
        ath10k_dbg(ATH10K_DBG_BOOT, "boot otp execute result %d\n", exec_param);
