FWIW I've tried reproducing but I don't get the error with the 8265 /
8275 chip in my laptop. I've thought about sending a patch for mac80211
to just clear the tx_time_est field after calling
ieee80211_sta_update_pending_airtime() - that should prevent any errors
from double-reporting of skbs (which is what I'm guessing is going on
here). However, it kinda feels like a band-aid so I'd much rather figure
out why this particular driver/device combo cause this :)

Sounds good, thanks!
