#7227 closed enhancement (fixed)

enable iwlwifi drivers via mac80211

Reported by: framer99 Owned by: hauke
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: iwlwifi iwlagn iwl4965 iwl3945 Cc:


I'm sure it's not pretty but it does build and work with a 4965agn card on x86.

I've included an additional patch that is required until this file: 08-rename-iwl4965-config.patch from the official compat-wireless tarball is included in the openwrt "unofficial" compat-wireless tarball.

It's got firmware selection options because the build for 5000 model card supports 5000/5150/1000/6000 cards and I wanted the user to be able to include just the firmware for the actual card they have (the firmware files average 300K each, total for iwlagn could be ~1.6M).

I just handled the 4965 and 3945 firmware the same way even though they are one-for-one build to firmware choice.

I assume I'm possibly cluttering up the menuconfig menu.

sorry about all the tickets i messed up to get this one posted.
trac was rejecting my patch attachment for too many download urls in it, but I thought it was rejecting the entire ticket because of the url i had in the ticket description field

anyway, this ticket, 7227 is the last one, please close and ignore Tickets #7224 #7225 #7226

the iwlcore module needs an autoload value of 59 (<60 on iwlagn and iwl3945) so it loads first.

I didn't notice that when i moved from a test package with all modules setup with one autoload macro line to individual module packages all with autoload "60"

enable_iwlwifi_via_mac80211_makefile.v2.patch is an updated patch against trunk.

the autoload issue mentioned above is fixed and the iwl4965 rename patch is no longer needed since it's now included with the compat-wireless tarball(thanks ndb)

ignore all previous patches

Thank you for the patch. It is applied in r26534.

I do not have a device with such a card, so please make a runtime test.
