Submitting patches

Send patches to the mailing lists below. Kalle Valo reviews the patches within the next few days and, if they are ok, commits them to ath.git.

Preferably use ath.git master branch as the baseline for patches. Other trees can be used as well, but then the chances of conflicts are higher.

You can follow the state of ath11k patch review from patchwork:

https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-wireless/list/?state=*&q=ath11k

Guidelines

The ath11k patch guidelines are the same as ath10k guidelines.

Hardware families

ath11k supports two hardware families:

  • IPQ8074 SoC AP devices
  • QCA6390 PCI mobile devices

Just like with ath10k, all ath11k patches need to account all supported hardware families.

Testing information needs to be provided using Tested-on tag. Few Tested-on tag examples:

Tested-on: IPQ8074 hw2.0 AHB WLAN.HK.2.1.0.1-00410-QCAHKSWPL_SILICONZ-2
Tested-on: IPQ6018 hw1.0 AHB WLAN.HK.2.1.0.1-01161-QCAHKSWPL_SILICONZ-1
Tested-on: QCA6390 hw2.0 PCI WLAN.HST.1.0.1-01230-QCAHSTSWPLZ_V2_TO_X86-1

Patch flow

The ath11k patch flow is the same as ath10k patch flow
