There's a link on

Search for "Firmware specification and Errata".

Note that Marvell didn't get the concept of open-source really. 
So there is no support from Marvell towards the linux community, 
e.g. we don't get updated manuals. The above document leaked via 
a mailing list. I'm quite sure that their sales and executive 
people still don't know how helpful this was for the linux 
community ... and in the long run for their sales!

So, if ever Intel makes an embedded WIFI device (e.g. CF and 
SDIO), I'd go with Intel. They are *WAY* better towards the open 
source community.
