Firmware lacks feature flag indicating a retry limit of > 2 is OK, requested limit: 4
I haven't seen this one before, but I've been primarily running the "classic" ath10k drivers. This is with
kmod-ath10k-ct and the
-ct firmware for the chips.
pre-cal-*-*.bin extracted from the ART partition (appears to load sucessfully).
Edit: This is not seen with the "classic" ath10k drivers on the same device.
It may also be my incomplete bring-up of a new device.
All three of the radios, 2x IPQ4019, 1x QCA9888 indicate this when I try to start wireless (at kern.warn):
[ 265.928320] ath10k_ahb a000000.wifi: Firmware lacks feature flag indicating a retry limit of > 2 is OK, requested limit: 4 [ 268.441746] ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: Firmware lacks feature flag indicating a retry limit of > 2 is OK, requested limit: 4 [ 270.287283] ath10k_ahb a800000.wifi: Firmware lacks feature flag indicating a retry limit of > 2 is OK, requested limit: 4
Is this something to be concerned about and track down sooner than later?
I found similar in the logs of a couple people with problems:
As well as some bug reports from a Google search, but not clear that the log message is related to the issue.
