  RTL8822BE [10ec:b822] Subsystem [103c:831b] wifi regression

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This wireless adapter worked well under 18.04.4 (kernel 5.3) but has
  poor range after installing 20.04 (kernel 5.4).  This is testing a
  2.4GHz connection.  While the received signal strength appears to be
  the same with either kernel, the transmitted signal is much weaker
  under the 5.4 kernel (as assessed from the wifi access point running
  OpenWrt): the 5.4 kernel yields  ~10-20 lower dBm than the 5.3 kernel.
  This greatly reduces the usable wifi range.

  To summarize testing:
  5.3.0-28-generic (Booting off a 18.04.4 live USB) shows good signal.
  5.4.0-39-generic (latest supported on 20.04) is problematic
  5.6.0-1011-oem (installed from standard repos) is problematic
  mainline kernel 5.8.0-050800-generic shows good signal.

  Ideas to further narrow down this regression?
