Bug Description

[Impact]
The new firmware for QCA9377 supports Qualcomm's RED(Radio Equipment Directive) compliance and requires more IRAM banks. The origin 4 banks doesn't fit the new BDF and firmware.

[Fix]
Change the bank number from 4 to 9.

[Regression Potential]
Low, increasing the number of IRAM banks should be no harm.

[Misc]
Currently, both driver patch and new firmware do not upstream yet. For the sake of avoiding dkms package, we can change t
he IRAM bank number before their patch is ready.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-done-xenial'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-xenial' to 'verification-failed-xenial'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
