You can create kmod packages for the kernel modules build by MHI_BUS, 
QRTR, QCOM_QMI_HELPERS and whatever you need. Then the ath11k package in 
OpenWrt selects them and it should build on all targets.

We already added a title text to other configuration symbols, see 

The hard part is known which patches to backport in addition. ;-)
