[AR6000] Openmoko driver for OMAP3 ( TI )

Hello everybody,

First of all, I'm all new in Linux kernel developer's community, so please try not to through me out like you would do with your stinky socks :)

I am currently working on the OMAP3 EVM Board from TI, trying to setup the AR6k SDIO WLAN card.

The kernel I'm using is 2.6.28, and I want to use the AR6k driver from CardAccess without the PNP, and with the Linux SDIO stack.

I saw that openmoko did the job, so I downloaded and patched the version 2 of AR6k driver ( http://svn.openmoko.org/developers/sameo/patches/ar6k-atheros-2.0/2.6.24/ ), and then applied Werner's patches ( http://svn.openmoko.org/developers/werner/wlan-spi/patches/ ).

Of course, I only applied patches which are not related to S3C/GTA02. So, the patches I applied are these :
- hif-linux-sdio.patch
- ar6k-without-sdio.patch
- sdio-f0-unrestrict.patch

So now, here are the results when starting Linux :
mmc0: new SDIO card at address 0001
eth0: link down
BMI Get Target Info: Exit (ver: 0x1301000e type: 0x1)
Block Size Set: 128 (target address:0x8000066C)
ar6000_init() Got WMI @ 0xc71811c0.
Sending DHCP requests .<7>mmci-omap-hs mmci-omap-hs.0: mmc0: CMD53, argument 0x1
eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, lpa 0x83E1
 Timeout waiting for recv message
 Target Not Available!!
ar6000_avail: register_netdev failed
ar6000_destroy(): WMI not ready 0xc73c0380 0xc71811c0
ar6000_destroy(): Shut down WMI
 Attempting to reset target on instance destroy....
.<7>mmci-omap-hs mmci-omap-hs.0: IRQ Status is 2

Therefore, I have several questions :
- Is openmoko community ONLY interested in Samsung's platform ? I mean, does the feedback I could give you for TI's platform would interest openmoko ?
- Could I get some help from openmoko community to get the Atheros driver work on OMAP3 ?
- Do you think openmoko's AR6k driver and Werner's patches can fit my platform easily ?
- And finally ... does anyone has any idea about the reason of my issue when loading the AR6K driver ?

Thanks, and sorry if I'm not allowed to post here :)
