SubjectRE: [PATCH] [v13] wireless: Initial driver submission for pureLiFi STA devices
Date
> That wasn't my point. My point was that the kernel code trusts the validity of the firmware image, in the sense of e.g. this piece:

>> + no_of_files = *(u32 *)&fw_packed->data[0];

> If the firmware file was corrupted (intentionally/maliciously or not), this could now be say 0xffffffff.

Thanks for the clarification, We will submit next patch with additional validations to this

As the LiFi is not standardised yet we are using the existing wireless frameworks. For now piggy-backing with 2.4GHz is seamless for users. We will undertake band and other wider change once IEEE 802.11bb is standardised.

Thanks
