Hi Linux Wireless driver maintainers, I'm giving a talk at ELC NA next month in Portland and I'd like a little help from our other driver maintainers. The talk is titled: "Reliable Linux Wireless - Techniques for Debugging Wireless Module Integrations". While I'm familiar with a fairly wide variety of WiFi chips and adapters and drivers, I don't know them all. I will speak from my experience and I'm sure I won't have time to get into the detailed ins-and-outs of every driver, but I'd love to include value for everyone no matter which wifi chip vendor the audience member is using.
So, if you have any specific tips or tricks you'd like to share with me so I can include them in the materials for my talk I would appreciate it. I'm looking for those harder to find things: the little known debugfs knobs, module parameters, device tree bindings, and so on. Or, those things that are are common tripping up points. Anything you find useful or think others might. Also, part of my talk will be about how to reach out to those of us on the list for help. We all know the calls for help come to us in varying quality and I'd like to explain all the stuff to do first and all the information to gather and send to us as they reach out. So please send me any thoughts on what you'd like to see in the emails when people ask for help. You're welcome to do it on-list if you desire to elicit discussion, but in order to keep the noise down feel free to reply to me directly off-list. For those that are not of the maintainer types that happen to be on this list, if you're looking for help or tips and tricks, please attend my talk at ELC or otherwise come and find me. All are welcome. Thanks, - Steve
