Hehe, fair :) Maybe I'm mixed up.

But I do get the feeling that specifically within the ath10k family,
there are wildly different use cases (mobile, PC, AP) and chips (and
firmware) that tend to go along with them, and that those use cases
get a fairly different population of {developers, testers, reporters}.
So claiming "feature X works" pretty much always has to be couched in
which chips, firmware, and use case. And there's certainly some wisdom
in these sections:

OK! I hope I'm not the only one with such results, because then I
still might question my sanity (and test coverage), but that's still
my understanding.

BTW, I haven't yet closely reviewed the patch series myself, but I ACK
the concept.
