Subject: Re: What is in bcm43xx-wireless-dev.git?

Hello, Michael!

I've tried the master branch of bcm43xx-wireless-dev.git for the first
time.  The results are not encouraging so far (although I'm quite new to
this chipset).

drivers/ssb/driver_mips/mips.c includes asm/time.h, which is missing on
x86_64.  It also refers to struct ssb_serial_ports, which is not defined
anywhere.

drivers/ssb/driver_pci/pcicore.c refers to SSB_PCICORE_SBTOPCI1_CFG1
that is not defined anywhere in the kernel.

I could send you huge logs, but I think it's already a clear sign that
you didn't compile-test the current tree with CONFIG_SSB_DRIVER_MIPS
enabled.  Things are better if it is disabled.

In case you haven't seen those warnings:

/home/proski/src/linux-2.6/drivers/net/wireless/d80211/bcm43xx/bcm43xx_main.c:843: warning: 'bcm43xx_wireless_core_mark_inactive' defined but not used
/home/proski/src/linux-2.6/drivers/net/wireless/d80211/bcm43xx/bcm43xx_main.c:3032: warning: 'bcm43xx_bluetooth_coext_enable' defined but not used

I could compile the code, and it even loaded as a module, but the kernel
oopsed once I brought wlan0 up by ifconfig.

P.S.  Second attempt, this time with "pio=1" parameter.  At least it
didn't crash, but it would not work either:
