I don't see the Mediatek WCN reporting there. Looking at the 1004K user
manual I couldn't find a notice about such behaviour. So this looks
more like a fix for papering over the real bug by just introducing
a few more syncs. Could you please point me to where this is
really documented ?

Thomas.

You may actually be right. After doing some testing we may not need
this change after all. Let me drop this patch for now. FYI, the
following commit may have fixed LL SC issues this change was covering
up: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190613134933.048961704@infradead.org/
