Bug Description

ath10k: add max_tx_power for QCA6174 WLAN.RM.2.0 firmware
QCA6174 WLAN.RM.2.0 firmware uses max_tx_power instead of using max_reg_power
to set transmission power. The tx power was about -50dbm, after applying this
change, it become -32dbm.

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 for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
