RTL8189FS patches for Mainline

Recommended Posts

I've been working on the rtl8189fs patches for Mainline.


Althouth the source code change between Legacy and Mainline is pretty trivial, preparing good and nice patches becomes a tedious task :


- First, the original patch in Legacy contains tons of DOS file formatted (strange for a Linux driver, shame on Realtek) and even dos2unix failed on some files because of binaries character (probably Chinese), I had to edit many files because I wouldn't "signed-off" such ugly thing. (btw, maybe that dos2unix job should be done one Legacy to make it cleaner)


- It is a quick big patch, but about the same size as the one in Legacy, about 10MB of text file.


- Even after applying the patch, we still need to have some other patches, one for DefConfig in Igor's lib/config and one for DTS which I will work on tomorrow ...


- Then, lots of testing need to be done, especially that I need to figured out that everything is working in the fresh build environment, then a PR will be sent to Igor.
