However, I've found another firmware binary in my firmware collection that seems to work a lot more stable. Haven't seen it crash in the past 5 hours or so. I'll keep it running over night  and see if it is indeed stable.

Interesting. In that case WiFi has been fully stable for me :-). Which firmwares have you tried? I have been working with the firmware and nvram.txt that I copied from the mrfixit Debian Stretch image that shipped by default.

Regarding your experience I'd guess on aggressive power saving, too. I see the same behaviour with most modern smartphones and there I know for a fact that it is power management.

Agree. To be honest I was just relieved that the standard kernel interfaces are sufficient to work around it (I've worked on platforms where that isn't the case).
