Where does the wl12xx gets its MAC Address?
I am trying to connect a wl1271 module to an external SDIO interface (implemented in an FPGA)
I have implemented a driver for the SDIO interface (currently on a omap4430)
Right now, the wl12xx / mac80211 driver stop after wl1271_op_start( )
with an EADDRNOTAVAIL error (indicating that the MAC address is not set)
so wl1271_op_add_interface never gets called and the interface never fully comes up
Note ( wl1271_register_hw is called wl1271_op_start)
Where is the MAC address supposed to be set so the mac80211 does not stop because the wl1271 does not have a MAC address????
To add to my own question
I am using comapt-wireless 2.6.38nswith a 2.6.38 kernel with Ubuntu
and it looks like the code in wl1271_register_hw has changed with respect to this in later versions of the wl12xx driver
