As part of our commitment to help support all of our Atheros devices
under Linux we'd like to announce the release of our Atheros HAL for
our 802.11abg chipsets under the ISC license.

You can find it here:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/ ... al.tar.bz2

This can be used as a source of documentation to help ath5k move
forward to support our 802.11abg chipsets as best as possible in
the Linux kernel. We look forward to keep working strongly with the
community on advancing support of all our Atheros chipsets under Linux.

Luis

Sam Leffler releases HAL source

Sam Leffler, maintainer of the Atheros hardware abstraction layer (HAL), has released the source under an ISC license. Previously, this piece of the MadWifi driver for Atheros wireless chipsets was only available in binary form.
"In his announcement, Sam states: Coincident with the release of this code I have concluded my agreement with Atheros whereby I had access to information about their devices. This means that in the future all fixes, updates for new chips, etc. will need to be a community effort. Atheros states the Linux platform will be the reference public code base so folks wanting to add support for other platforms will have to scrape the information from there."
