The vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2019-17666 and a patch proposed: https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/10/16/1226

You are asking this yourself. A few of Armbian contributors does not deal with 4 years old bugs found in 3rd party wireless driver we don't support at all. Its not the first and not the last one that is in the code. This one is too small to bother with. You will receive this fix after its landed upstream and after next regular release. You can use automated daily builds, where this will land automatically but those are untested builds. Decide what is worse.
