I see what you mean. siba_core.c which depends on PCI code would be compiled when it builds on SENTRY5. So it looks currently it needs a patch to compile siba bus code without PCI code. I'll try to make a patch. > > ssb0: <Broadcom BCM4315 802.11b/g Wireless> mem 0xf4000000-0xf4003fff > Think thre is 4 cores. > When SSB on nexus, we don`t need core switching, maybe on PCI too. I think this is a difference between siba(4) and siba_bwn currently and it's one of TODOs we should solve to merge two codes. AFAIK approach to access each cores isn't same; it looks siba(4) creates devices for each cores so it'd not need to switch cores. But siba_bwn doesn't do it like siba(4) so it needs to switch cores because all are handled on one device. regards, Weongyo Jeong _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
