uuuuugh okay So it's a chicken/egg problem.
You can't finish the device probe/attach until the firmware loads. For iwn, you can read the chipset abilities and mac address from EPROM/flash on the chip without the firmware being loaded, so you can complete probe/attach before the root filesystem is mounted. For iwm, you have to load the firmware before you can read the chipset abilities and MAC address so you can't complete probe/attach until AFTER the root filesystem is mounted. If someone wants to go add all of that support in to have probe/attach deferred until after rootfs is available then please do so. Or, just support the firmware being 100% compiled in- but when I tried this the last time I ran out of some firmware arena size preventing other firmware for other chipsets from being loaded. Otherwise this is the current hack. :) Sorry! -adrian _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
