The QSDK [1] is based on OpenWRT and is open source. During development of ath10k
(and earlier ath9k), qca-wifi code has been ported to the other side (and maybe
vice-versa). That's why some exported kernel symbols in the drivers overlap.

If the argument to not consider the proposed change is based on politics (i.e. 'it
is for something not being part of OpenWRT core'), I'm fine dropping it and
keeping the change privately. But I'm pretty sure there are use cases where it
would be helpful to disable kernel-modules in the uci-default processing - as an
example of fully supported by OpenWRT, think of selecting mainline or
Candelatech's ath10k driver based on installed HW.
