The first 5 were posted a month earlier than the 25 patchset, and are
bug fixes.  Whatever reason you ignored them, it wasn't because
there were 25 patches from me on the list at the time.

The second big series has the first patch as bug-fix, and clearly noted
in the 0000 description.  Grab it, and save the rest for later.

I'll be happy to re-work the big patch-set, but there is a lot of churn in
ath10k, and waiting months before applying patches means they rot and makes
more work for everyone.  Let's get these 6 bug-fixes in, and then I'll rebase,
test, and post a smaller patch-set for consideration.
