  Qualcomm Atheros QCA61x4 cannot connect to encrypted 5Ghz networks

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The device works fine with Ubuntu 15.10 mainline kernel 4.2.0 and the
  firmware provided in linux-firmware on 2,4 Ghz wifi networks or
  unencrypted 5GHz networks.

  But when i connect to a encrypted 5Ghz network.  The firmware provide in linux-firmware (WLAN.RM.1.1-00141) crashed like i think is described here:

  So i installed the latest firmware release
  SW_RM.1.1.1-00157-QCARMSWPZ-1 from ath10k-firmware

  In this version the firmware doesn't crash but goes into a loop. Like
  you see in dmesg, the device associates with the AP, but from an
  unknown reason it cannot connect.

  At the moment i cannot provide you any details about the AP im testing
  with, because im using my universities network, but if you really need
  them i can test the device with an known AP in a week or so.

  I reported the bug to the ath10k mailing list, but i think the topic got lost:

  PS: I tested the problem with all mainline and upstream kernels(4.2.6,
  4.3.0,4.4rc4) without any difference.
