Hi Witold,

I am trying to do this with rtl8192e.
One possibility is to take the following patch series as a starting point:
https://yhbt.net/lore/all/1414604649-9105-1-git-send-email-tvboxspy@gmail.com/

For me as a beginner and hobbyist this is a huge task. I am happy when I 
can finish it until next summer.

In case of questions feel free to ask.

Bye Philipp
