Here is the info:

0x00340aff sub 17aa:0827

Agreed.

Would it be helpful to adjust the default rate limits and set the to
a higher value instead. It might be difficult to account all possible
invalid values?

Something like, ath10k_warn_ratelimited() to adjust the

DEFAULT_RATELIMIT_INTERVAL and DEFAULT_RATELIMIT_BURST using
DEFINE_RATELIMIT_STATE

Let me know if you like this idea. I can send a patch in to do this.
I will hang on to this firmware version for a little but longer, so
we have a test case. :)

thanks,
