Hello,

I'm trying to configure a wi-fi AP in a guest OS.
The guest OS is the OpenWRT v15.05-RC3 (I also tried current version of the
Arch Linux with the same result), it runs in the bhyve and the host OS is:
#uname -msr
FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p14 amd64

The system CPU is: # sysctl hw.model
hw.model: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1265L v3 @ 2.50GHz
(it supports VT-d)

There are two miniPCIe wi-fi adapters which are installed in a PCIe switch
card and passed to the guest OS:

//It's the PCIe switch adapter
# pciconf -lvbc pci0:1:0:0

Well, the QCA9880 works more or less without issues, but there is the issue
with the AR9380 - it doesn't work properly. I can see it in the guest OS, I
can configure it, I can scan environment for networks, but when I start it
in the AP mode there is no corresponding SSID in the air.
I see following messages in the guest OS boot log: # dmesg | grep ath9k
[    7.410394] ath9k 0000:00:07.0: can't derive routing for PCI INT A
[    7.411012] ath9k 0000:00:07.0: PCI INT A: no GSI
It sounds not good.
I don't know if it relates to the FreeBSD/bhyve or a guest OS. In my
opinion, the former is more likely.

Is it possible to resolve this issue?
