  Surface Go - QCA6174 wifi card not correctly recognized and therefore

Bug description:
  Output of dmesg on Surface Go fresh installed Ubuntu 18.10.

  "[ 4.242132] ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: qca6174 hw3.2 target 0x05030000 chip_id

  [ 4.308059] ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: failed to fetch board data for 
from ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0/board-2.bin
  [ 4.309354] ath10k_pci 0000:01:00.0: board_file api 1 bmi_id N/A crc32 

  There is a board.bin available directly from the vendor

  The only thing which is missing is getting this added to
  https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/ath10k/boardfiles so
  the official board-2.bin. My problem is that I dont know how to read
  the board files and modify them because I do not know the encoding
  they use.

  Also there have been some updates in the upstream linux-firmware repo.
  firmware.git/commit/?id=a87eb5f7bac0f70ade57da57d9126d14eee12336 and
  https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware/tree/master/QCA6174/hw3.0 but
  they also do not help to get the wifi card working/recognized.

  Any ideas how to get this solved?

  Also there is a guide how to port it to Linux
