hiya, ok. There aren't any plans yet to do that driver. I have all the hardwrae and documentation (i was part of the team that did bringup and driver development for this particular chip, so I know it pretty well) but I have too much else going on at the moment.
I'll send an email out to the list if/when I have done an initial ath10k port from linux.
