Hi.

We want to use the fmac driver kernel module together with kernel 5.15.x on platform with chipset CYW43455 and the STM32MP153C.

When will the driver be release for the new kernel?

Is it possible to use the backport with kernel 5.15.x?

How big is the difference between mainline kernel and the provided patch stack of your current release for kernel 5.10.9? Is it possible to apply the 5.10.9 patch stack to kernel 5.15.x?

 

Thanks in advance!

KR, Micha

Hi @workhero ,

The current latest driver only supports upto v5.10.9. You will run into merge conflicts if you try to patch 5.15.x .
You can manually try to resolve them to make it work with 5.15.x
There is no timeline available for 5.15 support. My guess would be towards the end of this year or early next year.
Thanks
