There are many versions for this chipset, and its driver is not finished yet.
So it "normal" some details in some versions do not work.

This a above looks like a simple bug, so its best to talk to the driver
developers, and try a newer kernel ..

and by using it, instead of the nativ driver, the issue won't get better. Did
you submit a bug for your problems with the native driver?
