Subject: [PATCH 00/65] Simplify and improve the wfx driver

From: Jérôme Pouiller <>

Hello all,

This pull request is finally bigger than I expected, sorry.

It contains 2 main topics:
  - Simplify handling of stations in power save mode. Most of the work
    was redundant with mac80211. I have saved plenty of lines of code
    by using the mac80211 API better.
  - Continue to clearly separate hardware interface from the rest of
    the driver. The biggest part of this clean-up is done. It is now
    possible to look at the warning raised by sparse and fix
    support for big endian hosts.
