So basically you want a configuration (".ini") file for ath10k, right? I
have seen those in out-of-tree drivers, but not in upstream drivers.

If I'm guessing right what these configuration items would do in ath10k,
I think instead of static configuration it would be much more flexible
to have this stuff configurable dynamically. But how, that's the
question. A sysfs file to set different profiles (or modes) was the
first one which came to my mind, but that's ugly.
