This is a IPQ4019-based device with a PCI-attached QCA9888
supplying a third radio on 5 GHz. The OEM's firmware and source
suggest that this device is "based on Qualcomm AP DK07.1-c1"

Linksys ships four market-specific variants of this device, notated as
-AH, -EU, (no suffix), and -CA. They supply four sets of pre-cal board
files in their firmware, AH, EU, FCC, and IC. The corresponding files
differ from each other, and appear to provide different parameters in
the different regions. The OEM firmware copies the appropriate set of
files into place based on examining the SKU of the device at boot.

These board files may be obtained from extraction of the OEM firmware
Ver., Latest Date: 11/8/2018, 49.0 MB
Ver., Latest Date: 11/15/2017, 47.4 MB
and/or from a running device. There does not appear to be a difference
in the board files between the two firmware versions.

DTS for the EA8300 under OpenWrt expects that the variant be encoded
as, for example, linksys-ea8300-fcc, with the lower-cased suffix
indicating the OEM's regional code, or -fcc.

Two similar messages will be sent, one for each chipset, as per the directions.

The files selected and their original names and organization include:


The files were renamed as follows:

        for JD in AH EU FCC IC ; do
            jd=$(echo "$JD" | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z')
            cp -vp OEM/QCA9888/${JD}/boardData_2_0_QCA9888_5G_Y9690_SBS_HB.bin \

Renamed board files are individually attached to QCA9888 messages.
