Hi team, I'm toothe from the IRC channel. I hope you all are doing well :) Let me tell you where I am in writing my code. In short, I am stuck and need asisstance.
I created a copy of the rtl8192c code, and placed it here: https://github.com/khanzf/freebsd/tree/master/sys/dev/rtwn/rtl8188ee I zero'd out all functions and went one-by-one to replace them as necessary. The section of code that I am stuck at is reading the EEPROM/ROM from the chip. I backed into the ROM image for the first 222 bytes by using the Linux source as documentation and created this: ( https://github.com/khanzf/freebsd/blob/master/sys/dev/rtwn/rtl8188ee/r88ee_rom_image.h#L56) When I read from the ROM, I basically get 500~ bytes of 0xFF - the first 10 or so are set properly, suggesting that I am reading from the right memory segment. Specifically, the first 2 bytes are 0x8129, which is accurate per the Linux driver. But why is everything else coming up as 0xFF's? I delved into how FreeBSD's rtwn and Linux's rtl8188ee drivers work. The efuse code is very similiar, of course, but I do not understand the reasoning for what is occurring. The main difference I found, so far, was that the Linux driver will read from EFUSE_CTRL + an offset (1, 2 or 3), whereas the FreeBSD driver does not use an offset. This is where I am stuck. I would easily just change the code over to add the offset on the FreeBSD code, but it is in sys/dev/rtwn/if_rtwn_efuse.c, which is used by multiple drivers. I am unsure what is wrong or how to diagnose it. Can you please provide me some guidance? I have been stuck on this same issue for a little more than a month.
