Harish Bandi <> privately reported to me that
he sees frame reassembly errors with this patch and WCN3998. He
didn't provide any more details yet, so at this point we only know
that there appears to be some difference between WCN3990 and WCN3998
wrt firmware download.

For now let's limit this fix to WCN3990. We can revisit WCN3998 later
if it is confirmed that it has the same problem.
