While looking arrond in linux-next today I found this commit[1] to
staging. It adds support for the AR6003 chip. The Freerunner uses an
chip in the AR600x-series. (An older revision than v3 I think). The
commit also talk about replacing it with a new driver based on
mac80211, ath6k. According to [2], the driver is supposed to be for
the AR600x family of chips while currently only v3 is supported. [2]
also contains (unfree) firmware for v3. Does anyone have an idea about
how useful all this is for the chip in the Freerunner? (For example:
How different is the AR6003 from the one in the Freerunner?)
