Subject: [PATCH 0/4] Driver for the ar5523 chipset
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general
Date: Thursday 11th October 2012 20:01:38 UTC (over 5 years ago)
Some time ago I found an old USB wireless dongle in my drawer. I was
surprised it wasn't supported in Linux. Google gave me an old
unfinished driver created by Christoph Hellwig. Armed with some
spare time and naivity I picked up where Christoph left in 2007 and
now it's actually working pretty fine. It does not crash for me and
throughput is decent.

It's based on the FreeBSD driver, which in turn is based on the
reverse engineered Windows driver, hence a very limited feature set.
Not even HW crypto offload is supported. But at least there is a
firmware which has a suitable license:
