Ever since 5.7-rc1, if we call
ath10k_qmi_remove_msa_permission(), the db845c hard crashes on
reboot, resulting in the device getting stuck in the usb crash
debug mode and not coming back up wihthout a hard power off.

This hack avoids the issue by returning early in
ath10k_qmi_event_server_exit().

A better solution is very much desired!

Feedback and suggestions welcome!
