Well... depends whom you ask and how much time you have :)
We tried a few times to debug those, but they take a very long time to debug
since typically we need lots of reproductions and the firmware team
doesn't always
the time to look at the data immediately so in the end, the people who
reported this
originally went away.
Note that 40MHz on 2.4GHz is not an optimal configuration in crowded
but if you live in a place where you are pretty much the only one using those
frequencies, then, it can be beneficial.
What you can try is to disable low power states (by using power_scheme
in iwlmvm)
and see if it helps. This setting has a bigger impact than
but it can give a hint as where the problem is coming from.
