Description Paul Menzel 2017-07-18 14:08:29 UTC
Despite the improvements from 2.2 seconds to 0.5 seconds firmware loading time for the ath10k in the Dell XPS 13 9360 in bug #185621, 0.5 seconds is still too long for resume.

Alternative solution should be thought about, like delaying downloading the firmware to a later “stage”, so that for only a small stub is initialized, and the rest is done from userspace.
