If you have a very recent patch (I think nbd's staging tree contains
it) ath10k will not support it unless you have a firmware capable of
peer-flow-control (not sure if it's publicly available yet). Not even
sure what FW is used in LEDE/OpenWRT now.

There's mt76 but I'm not sure if it's available in OpenWRT/LEDE (and
if so on which branch/repo).
