hcxtools - solution for capturing wlan traffic and conversion to hashcat formats
I'm fine, thanks and I hope you're fine, too.
First a general answer:
hcxdumptool is working on every driver (e.g.: mt76, rt2800usb, ath9k) that is able to run full monitor mode, full packet injection, accept ioctl() system calls and doesn't depend on NETLINK.
Unfortunately some drivers are hit by issues that (e.g. freeze/timeout on ath9k):

Now to answer your question: atk10k will not work due to firmware/driver limitations:
firmware does not support association to the same AP from different virtual STA interfaces (driver prints “ath10k: Failed to add peer XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX for VDEV: X” in that case)
packet injection isn't supported yet
applying ath9k regulatory domain hack patch from OpenWRT causes firmware crash (reason: regulatory hint function is never called and ath10k never sends scan channel list to the firmware which in turn causes firmware to crash on scan)
tx rate is reported as 6mbps due to firmware limitation (no tx rate information in tx completions); instead see /sys/kernel/debug/ieee80211/phyX/ath10k/fw_stats
WEP doesn't work with AP_VLANs - frames are sent unencrypted (observed on: 999.999.0.636,, 10.1.467.2-1)
TX speeds are extremely poor on certain chips (QCA6174 is one). A patch solves the issue in most cases

Please notice:
We are talking about Linux kernel stock firmware/drivers
and not about third party firmware/drivers/patches included in special penetration testing distributions (e.g.: K A L I).
I do not use K A L I , because I'm not a penetration tester!

I fully agree:
I'll never buy a device if I know that the kernel stock driver doesn't support full monitor mode, full packet injection and ioctl() system calls.
But some times I get a device to test some third party drivers, e.g. new rtw88 stack (Realtek):
If you are a Linux newbee (or an unexperienced K A L I user), I can't recommend to use third party or patched firmware/drivers, because you'll run into several issues (at the latest on a kernel update).

A good start to get an information about driver, driver updates, issues and chipset:

But be warned: Manufacturers often change the chipset, but will use the same case and customary packing!
