writing to mac,bbp or rf registers not supported?

I don't think we need to worry about the CMD_CFREGR related command.
This is related to the compact flash interface which is unrelated in
this project. 

If you only wanted to test the wlanconfig tool and it works fine for you
then you don't need my help to give you any registers.

Wlanconfig utility covers a lot of commands. But from the past
correspondences, I think you have probably covered all the useful ones.
In that case, I think it is safe to kill the wlanconfig utility if you
so desire.

Just testing the utility, which is working. 

BTW, the wlanconfig tool has support for accessing other registers such
as CMD_CFREGR, but docs dont mention firmware commands for it:

5.3 Register and Memory Access 
    5.3.1 CMD_BBP_REG_ACCESS Command
    5.3.2 CMD_RF_REG_ACCESS Command 
    5.3.3 CMD_MAC_REG_ACCESS Command

What registers? Do we need to implement access to any other registers in
the interface?

On the same topic, are you OK with removal of wlanconfig, or is still
there anything useful it provides?
