Many thanks for your fast help!
I've made some progress, but ran into other problems.
If i compile ath10_pci, ath10k_core and ath from kvalo's tree and load
them, i get following dmesg output:
[ 2.980448] ath10k_pci 0000:06:00.0: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
[ 2.980750] ath10k_pci 0000:06:00.0: pci irq msi-x interrupts 8

[ 4.430097] ath10k_pci 0000:06:00.0: could not register to mac80211 (-22)
So I compiled mac80211, and tried to load it. What i get is a load of
[ 226.812494] mac80211: Unknown symbol cfg80211_cqm_rssi_notify (err -22)
[ 226.812497] mac80211: disagrees about version of symbol cfg80211_auth_timeout
[ 226.812497] mac80211: Unknown symbol cfg80211_auth_timeout (err -22)
[ 226.812498] mac80211: disagrees about version of symbol
[ 226.812499] mac80211: Unknown symbol cfg80211_rx_unprot_mlme_mgmt (err -22)
Because mac80211 depends on cfg80211, i compilied and tested it. The
error messages reduced to
[ 632.208849] mac80211: Unknown symbol rhashtable_insert_rehash (err 0)
[ 632.208881] mac80211: Unknown symbol rhashtable_insert_slow (err 0)
Know I'm stuck. I'll try to compile and use the whole kernel (it's
compiling right now), but would prefer to just change the modules.
The firmware-4.bin is assembled like described in this thread, as
board.bin i used eeprom_qca9377_1p0_NFA435_olpc.bin.
Any Ideas? :)
