This patch adds support for new FullMAC WiFi driver for Quantenna
QSR10G chipsets.

QSR10G is Quantenna's 8x8, 160M, 11ac offering.
QSR10G supports 2 simultaneous WMACs- one 5G and one 2G. 5G WMAC
supports 160M, 8x8 configuration.
FW supports 8 concurrent virtual interfaces on each WMAC.

Patch introduces 2 new drivers- qtnfmac.ko for interfacing with
kernel/cfg80211 and qtnfmac_pcie.ko for PCIe bus interface.

The firmware name gives no indication what this file is about (remember
that linux-firmware.git has a lot of files). Please name it properly,
don't just use what is used in by firmware build scripts :) Take into
account also future hw support, all firmware files need to coexist in
the same repository without user invention. In a way the firmware
filename is part of kernel/userspace interface and needs to be stable.

For example, you could use something like "qtnfmac/qsr10g.img" (assuming
qsr10g is the name of chip).

Ok, we will reconsider our naming conventions, take into account more devices that we need to support in the future.
I'm thinking about something like:
qtn/fmac_qsr10g.img  <---- FullMAC QSR10G device
qtn/fmac_qsr1000.img  <---- FullMAC QSR1000 device
qtn/smac_qsr10g.img  <---- SoftMAC QSR10G
qtn/smac_qsr10000.img <----- SoftMAC QSR1000

I forgot already, is the firmware image ready for submission to
Yes, we have firmware binary license prepared by our legal department and its ready for submitting. Will send in parallel with next patch revision (only to linux-wireless for now, not to linux-firmware, as was discussed).

Usualle the preference is that driver is quiet until something goes
wrong. I hope some of these could be debug messages.

We will reduce noise generated by driver.
