Hi all,

During 2011, we started developing a FreeBSD driver for the

 * Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205
 * Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 100
 * Intel(R) Centrino(R) Ultimate-N 6300

devices.

This fell wayside, and wasn't really completed (e.g. rate scaling,
thermal throttling) but here we are releasing the code anyway. I'm not
very hopeful that the driver is useful as is, but maybe some interested
parties can salvage useful pieces from it and integrate them into iwn.
I'm sure there are a ton of hacks in this.

The attached tar archive contains the sources. I don't know much about
the FreeBSD build system, other than that it actually compiled out of
tree.

I'm not including the firmware, you can get those from the web and
uuencode them into the right places etc.

In personal capacity, I'm willing to help out with the device
programming as much as time permits, if anyone wants to port this into
iwn or add the missing features (rate scaling would be very useful I
guess.)
