> Subject: [RFC PATCH v2 0/6] ath79: support for TP-Link EAP2x5 1-port devices
> This patch series seeks to add support for the following devices:
> * TP-Link EAP245 v1
> * TP-Link EAP225 v3
> * TP-Link EAP225-Outdoor v1
> Currently not included:
> * TP-Link EAP225 v1/v2
Since I lost overview in the meantime, I've pushed all relevant changes into my staging tree here:
This is provided just for convenience as I created it for myself anyway, it doesn't mean that I will merge it or take care.
> Note that the patches cannot be applied straight to master, but require (at
> least) the first four patches (elf splitter and tplink safeloader) of my pull
> request for the EAP245 v3. (CC ynezz, rmilecki) For these patches, see
> https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/3130 and
> c905af8d32747c8da6d1b.1594471105.git.sander at svanheule.net/
> The first patches of this series are (derived from) work done by Julien Dusser
> and were submitted earlier in the following pull requests (reviewed by
> blogic, blocktrron, CodeFetch)
> * ar71xx: add support for TP-Link EAP245 v1
> * ath79: extra gmac configurations from DT on qca956x
> Some extra work since has led to a reduced set of patches to provide support
> for the EAP245 v1 on ath79. Since the other devices are so similar, they are
> also included in this series. There were objections in pulling in support earlier
> due to the badly configured bootloader and firmware upload protections.
> The main work-around for the broken bootloader is in patch 2/6, which adds
> an initialisation sequence for the SGMII SERDES. Patch 1/6 ensures the SGMII
> interface is enabled when required.
> A work-around for the firmware protection was found by using a debug
> mode that doesn't perform firmware RSA signature checks. On earlier
> firmwares (EAP245 v1 and EAP225 v1/v2), a binary patch is required to
> prevent a crash, but more recent firmwares (EAP225 v3, EAP225-Outdoor v1,
> EAP245 v3) can enable the debug mode by using a simple command.
> * The EAP245 v1 factory partition layout is different from, though
> compatible with, the layout provided in patch 3/6. The only difference
> this makes, is a slightly smaller firmware partition and perhaps
> the odd confused user seeking to extract the original user-config
> partition. Using only one layout does simplify the DTs, which is why
> I went with the current approach. Is this okay, or should I stay closer to
> the original layout?
> * I can probably provide working support for the EAP225 v1/v2, given
> the minimal differences between the devices. However, I do not have
> this device to test an image, nor has anyone offered to test on the
> forums. This device would have a similar flashing procedure as the
> EAP245 v1. Would you nevertheless want me to provide a patch?
> Changes in v2:
> * Implemented DTS/DTSI header changes.
> * Moved LED definitions.
> * eap245-v1 ath10k MAC address now comes from flash.
> * Renamed EAP225OD to EAP225-Outdoor throughout the patches.
> * The patch providing extra #define's for QCA956X SoCs was dropped.
> Most of it has been available upstream since 2018 with kernel commit
> * Put phy-mode in the correct device node (eth0, not phy4)
> * Ensure QCA956X_ETH_CFG_GE0_SGMII is set when required. Removes
> the need for
> the device tree extension patch.
