It seems like the firmware is not responsive, and is not reporting TX
status or consuming H2C commands.
The first trace dump "purge skb(s) not reported by firmware" will be
printed when driver timed-out for TX status report. It could happen
sometimes when driver turns power off too quickly after de-auth sent.
Or firmware just missed it. Originally I was thinking that the TX status
missing means that the firmware is not working, but seems it's not
true. So I think I might lower the print level (WARN() -> rtw_warn()).

But from your kernel log I can see that the h2c commands failed to
be sent to firmware, which means there's another things that cause
firmware to stall. It will be better if you can turn the debug masks on,
and reproduce it, to help me so see what happened.
To turn the debug masks on:
$ echo 0xffffffff > /sys/module/rtw88/parameters/debug_mask
