There still is a problem with the RTL8822cu chipset I have here. When
using NetworkManager I immediately lose the connection to the AP after
it has been connected:

[ 376.213846] wlan0: authenticate with 76:83:c2:ce:81:b1
[ 380.085463] wlan0: send auth to 76:83:c2:ce:81:b1 (try 1/3)
[ 380.091446] wlan0: authenticated
[ 380.108864] wlan0: associate with 76:83:c2:ce:81:b1 (try 1/3)
[ 380.136448] wlan0: RX AssocResp from 76:83:c2:ce:81:b1 (capab=0x1411 status=0 aid=2)
[ 380.202955] wlan0: associated
[ 380.268140] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready
[ 380.275328] wlan0: Connection to AP 76:83:c2:ce:81:b1 lost

That doesn't happen when using plain wpa_supplicant. This seems to go
down to cd96e22bc1da ("rtw88: add beacon filter support"). After being
connected I get a BCN_FILTER_CONNECTION_LOSS beacon. Plain
wpa_supplicant seems to go another code patch and doesn't activate
connection quality monitoring.

The connection to the AP works fluently also with NetworkManager though
when I just ignore the BCN_FILTER_CONNECTION_LOSS beacon.

Any idea what may be wrong here?
