These are now working thanks to the work of Bartosz Markowski and his kernel patch and the testing by dr-cono

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r) git
echo "options ath10k_core skip_otp=y" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k_core.conf
wget http://filebin.ca/2LVgpjSgiT56/backports-ath-2015-11-05.tar.bz2
unzip backports-ath-2015-11-05.tar.bz2
cd backports-ath10k-2015-11-05
make defconfig-ath10k
make
sudo make install
git clone https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware.git
sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/ath10k/ /lib/firmware/
sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/QCA9377 /lib/firmware/ath10k/
cp firmware-5.bin_WLAN.TF.1.0-00267-1 firmware-5.bin

Reboot

Edit: There has been a recent change to the kvalo github site and the sudo cp -r ath10k-firmware/ath10k/ /lib/firmware/ is no longer valid or needed
