Kalle is providing the right possible patch to fix it.

The first bad commit you found, that causes this issue, introduced TX-AMSDU.
But we found that enabling TX-AMSDU on 2.4G band is not working while
connecting to some APs. So, you can try if the patch provided by Kalle works.
(I hope so). Otherwise, you can enable the kernel log debug mask by:
echo 0xffffffff > /sys/module/rtw88/parameters/debug_mask.
And collect the log to see if there's anything wrong.
