Description

Hey folks,

I wonder if it would be possible to include the if_iwm.ko and related firmware .kos. They are new as of FreeBSD11 also present in the GENERIC kernel... I copied them manually and they did work fine. However, since a few days they do not work anymore, more, they stop the system from working ;-)

I don't think we have any hardware to test this with.

pfSense kernel already has all intel wireless cards / firmwares built-in as you can see at:

https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-src/blob/RELENG_2_4/sys/amd64/conf/GENERIC#L285

GENERIC already add wpi, ipw, iwi and iwn. pfSense kernel config includes GENERIC and make some changes, then we have:

https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-src/blob/RELENG_2_4/sys/amd64/conf/pfSense#L29

These lines include the generic firmware, designed to work with all card models, for all drivers mentioned above

Just for reference: https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-src/blob/RELENG_2_4/sys/amd64/conf/NOTES#L355
