are interesting:

Use BCM43456 clm_blob on CYW43455
The previous CYW43455 clm_blob provides limited access to the higher
5GHz channels (100+) - the BCM43456 (surprisingly) seems to work and
doesn't have this problem. Huh????

Update CYW43455 firmware
This release fixes the error: Firmware trap: type 0x4 @ epc 0x0007a094
The full version string is:
Version 7.45.229 (617f1f5 CY) CRC: 253bd863 Date: Mon 2021-01-04 19:58:58 PST Ucode Ver: 1043.2160 FWID 01-2dbd9d2e
