Spent some time merging NetBSD's wi driver over the weekend

Spent some time trying to get my NetBSD/hpcmips box up to date. I should also try to get cross building on FreeBSD working, but there are too many issues with it.

Merged the Symbol firmware changes from NetBSD into FreeBSD's wi driver. My 3Com AirConnect now works!

Also did a split of pci/pccard front end out of if_wi to make future merging a little easier.

More merging of wi changes from NetBSD/OpenBSD into FreeBSD today. I'm out sick and that seems like a brainless thing that I can do.

Also, my ositech trump card arrived today, so I can test out the mhz NetBSD driver with it.

Fixed bugs last night in NEWCARD relating to multi-function cards. It was an amusing bug that prevented things from working properly unless the attributes were exactly in the right place.

I've also integrated the airtools stuff into the wi driver under FreeBSD. Next up is the host-ap functionality. Or maybe just the bus independent stuff that {Net,Open}BSD already does.

I'd like to merge NetBSD/OpenBSD/FreeSBD wi drivers together. They are drifting badly now and need some work and the result would be better for everybody.

I wonder if perforce could be used to automate the merge :-)

Committed the pci attachment code a few days ago. it is going well.

Found out some interesting things and now have the cards not interrupt storming. There are some issues in getting the cards to actually work, but I'm working on that.

Much more hacking on OLDCARD. I have a contract to get the pci cards working under 4.x.

I have most of an implementation together, but it suffers from some interrupt storming issues that I'm still investigating.

It has been a while since I've had time to write here.

My latest hacking has been in some end of life honing for the oldcard system. I've cleaned up many of the constants that were scattered through the source after finally finding the datasheets for most of the parts that were being so identified.

It also looks like it should be possible to share the managment and card interrupts. I'm looking into various possibilities here and will prototype them in the OLDCARD system. With this in place, I should be able to support the pci cards to a limited extent with OLDCARD.

Back ported the awi driver to -stable and committed it tonight.

BSDcon was good this year. Gave me a chance to help get the CARDBUS stuff into the tree. NEWCARD still has problems with 16-bit cards, but those should work themselves out shortly.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
