commit 00d8979d598d5461a06d800c779f15e03888d9d8 Author: Kalle Valo
Date: Wed Apr 29 23:33:31 2009 +0300 wl12xx: add driver wl12xx is a driver for TI wl1251 802.11 chipset designed for embedded devices, supporting both SDIO and SPI busses. Currently the driver supports only SPI. Adding support 1253 (the 5 GHz version) should be relatively easy.

Hooray, wl12xx is now in wireless-testing! As the commit log states, SDIO support isn’t there yet, because I haven’t written it yet. Well, I wrote some of it, but nothing worth even compile-testing yet.
As for the Android itself, I bought a snazzy serial breakout board for the phone so now I can do some real work on it. It works just fine with screen(1) as the terminal program.
Also, I solved the problem with booting: apparently the init program for 2.6.25 doesn’t work with 2.6.27 — when I put my own compiled init in the initramfs, everything mounted fine. The input devices now do not work, but I suspect it’s just a difference in paths and that an upgrade to 1.5 userland will fix all of that.
