Hi Gabriele,

I have had success with eeprom_ar6320_2p1_NFA344i.bin.

I am also using Gentoo (but v3.19.3) but I have also applied these
patches/commits:

- http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general/137030
- https://github.com/kvalo/ath/commit/d63955b33b3bee45d784ffdfafeb93076c765660

Also, I didn't use that disassemble.py script, I used:

- https://gist.github.com/kazikcz/8e5845ad84ca251aa295

I also had problems with calibration, I had to pass skip_otp=y to the module:

    $ cat /etc/modprobe.d/ath10k.conf
    options ath10k_core skip_otp=y

FWIW:

    $ lspci -vs 05:00.0
    05:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros Device 003e (rev 20)
            Subsystem: Bigfoot Networks, Inc. Device 1525
            Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 31
            Memory at f7800000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2M]
            Capabilities: <access denied>
            Kernel driver in use: ath10k_pci
            Kernel modules: ath10k_pci

I give a huge thanks to the individuals on this mailing list for
helping me; I'm just happy to give back where I can :)

I would interested in knowing from where you got your drivers/board
files. I had to download mine from my laptop manufacturer's (MSI)
website.

Note: I understand that ath10k doesn't support encryption yet. But I
haven't successfully been able to connect to my open AP as yet...

Cheers,
Corin
