Debian 8.5 - ath10k - Qualcomm Atheros Device 0042 (rev 30)


I am trying to get WIFI working on a Acer Aspier E 15 E5-575-30QD

lspci shows the following with respect to WIFI:
02:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros Device 0042 (rev 30)
verbose output - see in bottom of mail.
I am not sure which Qualcomm device it is, what I can find on the net is that the above lspci string is mentioned together with QC9377 ... so I have tried that, but would like to know if it is the correct name.

It is on a fresh installed Debian 8.5 with non-free drivers from here:

After installation I have upgraded it and rebooted it (don't remember if there was a new kernel)

I have cloned https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git into /lib/firmware/ath10k and copied the bin file that I think I should use to a new file without the part after .bin
sudo git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git /lib/firmware/ath10k
sudo cp -p  /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 /lib/firmware/ath10k/QCA9377/hw1.0/firmware-5.bin

Reboot - no wifi module detected
Added a file: /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_core.conf with the following line: options ath10k_core skip_otp=y
Reboot - no wifi module detected

Any hints?

Further I have a (minor) issue with bluetooth, but I have not been looking into that. Otherways the labtop seems good supported (sound works - didn't during live session from USB),
webcam works (during live session)
