Exactly.

If you could make it public.....

I am taking even not especially about this device, but
about ath5k AR2425.

My aspire one has several very nasty bugs, and little hope they will be
fixed, and I blame no one for that, developers are busy, and load is
high.

But on the other hand, chances I fix them are low, I already read whole
ath5k drivers, and without documentation it is hard to see what it going
on.

The only way out I see, it to load windows driver in ndiswrapper, pray
that it will work, and then use mmiotrace to see what is done
differently. I really hate going this way.


Best regards,
Maxim Levitsky
