Hi Tobias,

Tobias Geerinckx-Rice via Guix-patches via <address@hidden>

Will do.

Thank you for your review!
Your suggestions are in the patch appended.

Yes, please do.

idk what firmware they mean. This driver depends on cfg80211 which
shouldnt be a problem.
yes, this works out of the box with Linux-Libre (and not Libre) on the
laptop I have tested.
I havent tested bluetooth at all.

Kind Regards,
