I've finally brought up wifi on the Carambola 2 board.

It's an AR9330 SoC with 10/100 ethernet, 64MB RAM, 16MB flash, 1x1
2GHz 11n wifi. It's perfect for embedding into projects to wifi enable
them. It should also make for an awesome cheap 802.11s device.

The details and instructions are here:


Seriously cool stuff.

It turns out that bringing up the QCA HAL was really easy on this
board - the support is already there! I just needed to hack at the AHB
bus glue that I wrote and make sure that the QCA HAL flash EEPROM code
understood what I was doing. Woot!
