Did you update with the latest Qualcomm v5 ath10k firmware and associated
mac80211 patches that were committed into upstream openwrt trunk a couple
of days ago?

My last builds from end of May died several days ago after around a month
of uptime. Probably due to the power zone bugs in wifi but I can't check
until I get back to Vancouver tonight (currently in Mountain View)
