Hi everyone,

Looks like ath10k is very close to finally support
qca6164. Recent discussion[1] led to a working

I'm CCing everyone I've found in my mailbox that
complained about QCA6164 not working. Hopefully I
did not miss anyone.

I would really like to know if this patchset (in
its current shape and form) of mine works for any
of you who owns QCA6164. If it doesn't please try
Patch [1/2] only.

Today Kalle posted QCA6174 (which is actually
QCA61X4) firmware binary for ath10k[4]. Please use
it to test QCA6164 (i.e. don't use sumdog's
firmware nor your own assembled one).

However QCA6164 requires a different board.bin
file[3]. This requires some additional changes in
ath10k to support sanely but *for now* you can use
board file vvanpo extracted from window driver[5]
and place it as:


This should work. If it doesn't, try replacing the
existing board.bin - if you'll need to do please
let me/us know and post the boot string which
looks like this:

  ath10k_pci 0000:03:00.0: qca6174 hw2.1 (0x05010000, 0x003405ff, 168c:0041:17aa:3545 fallback) fw killer-n1525-fw api 5 htt-ver 0.0 wmi-op 4 htt-op 3 cal otp max-sta 32 raw 0 hwcrypto 1 features

My guess is some devices may have different
subsystem product/vendor ids. It'll be good to
know at least a subset of those for reference.
