Good to know that someone is still working on it.
However, it doesn't work for me. I cannot load the firmware:
lars at ttyp3 # kldload wpifw
lars at ttyp3 # dmesg
wpifw: You need to read the LICENSE file in /usr/share/doc/legal/intel_wpi/.
wpifw: If you agree with the license, set legal.intel_wpi.license_ack=1
module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (wpifw_fw, 0xc6d1151c, 0) error 1
lars at ttyp3 # grep legal.intel_wpi.license_ack /boot/loader.conf
lars at ttyp3 # sysctl legal
sysctl: unknown oid 'legal'
And I even read the license! ;-)
