Out of curiosity, I searched the datasheet and found this is a wireless
router SoC done by the WLAN team. It happens to share some peripherals
with other iProc based SoCs.

I cannot find a code name for this SoC from our internal documents. I
guess that name "Northstar" used here has confused both Jon and me.

Thanks,

Ray
