Subject: [PATCH] net: add QCA alx Ethernet driver
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 29th February 2012 01:50:09 UTC (over 4 years ago)
From: Luis R. Rodriguez 

The next patch adds the new QCA alx Ethernet driver that
supercedes the atl1c Ethernet driver. For details please
read the commit log of the patch. Given the size you can
download the patch from:

http://bombadil.infradead.org/~mcgrof/2012/02/28/add-alx-next-20120228.patch
sha1sum: 8a8f7b6f1cbe737e70ec3b3eda483a6925fd9bd6

Many thanks to our QCA Networking engineering team for their hard
work on getting this driver polished, well tested against atl1c,
and also to Joe and Hao-Ran for their patches.

If you'd like to quickly install this on any system even with older
kernels you can get this tarball which has the driver backported
for older kernels:

http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless/2012/02/compat-wireless-2012-02-28-p.tar.bz2
sha1sum: 7c083fc568900fbeefed021d009620830f866819

The "-p" postfix annotates that we have applied a patch in this tarball
from the linux-next-pending/ directory. For more details see:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download/stable/#Additional_patches_to_stable_releases

To only compile and install the alx driver you can do:

./scripts/driver-select alx
make
sudo make install

The install will disable atl1c in preference for alx. To revert back
to atl1c you can simply do:

./scripts/alx-enable atl1c

This is part of today's release of compat-wireless with the following
