*Disclaimer: compile tested only*

This series first adds features that were requested by some users
but might be broken or does not support OpenWrt "intended" usage
- "experimental" hardware (rt2800-usb)
- new Intel Hardware (iwlmvm) according to web reports
  does not support AP mode in 5GHz on some cards
  so it can be regarded as broken.
  This seems to be badly documented.
see: http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-wireless/msg137906.html
or: http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-wireless/msg137861.html
as example

Intel has published updated firmware that is only working
with newer Kernels (since we use backports that shouldnt matter anyway)
but there might be new bugs so keep the old versions too

Last two patches are trying to clean up the Makefile.

Dirk Neukirchen (7):
  mac80211: iwlagn: enable iwlmvm
  mac80211: rt2800-usb: enable "unknown" USB IDs
  mac80211: update linux-firmware to 2014-07-14
  mac80211: refresh Intel firmware
  mac80211: add iwlagn debug options
  mac80211: cosmetic changes
  mac80211: rename iwlagn to iwlwifi
