Thanks for the report but we are not kernel developers. You should probably try to report this to the upstream developers.

They can be reached at QCA ath9k Development <ath9k-devel@qca.qualcomm.com> and the associated mailing list is linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org

You can have a look at the existing bugs:
