The cw1200 driver has been accepted into the upstream linux kernel; it 
is present in the 3.11-rc and newer releases.  It is also present in the 
3.12 and newer backports releases.  Please see:

	https://backports.wiki.kernel.org

In general, I recommend using the latest version of backports.

Down the line, these changes are anticipated:

 * Devicetree bindings for the cw1200 driver (SPI and SDIO)
 * Support for the cw1x50/cw1x60 (depends on hardware availability)
 * Bugfixes as necessary

There currently two out-of-tree patches, bundled here:

 * ETF mode operation
 * ITP mode operation

These patches are provided as-is with no support, as they are only 
really of use if you have access to ST-E's ETF tools and intend to take 
a device through regulatory approval.  Contact your module vendor for 
further details.

There is also a patch intended to apply to the backports tree.

ST has granted permission to redistribute the firmware; it is under the 
firmware/ directory for your convenience.  It will be bundled with the 
linux-firmware distribution in the near future.

Additionally, Sagrad has granted permission to redistibute the SDD file for
its SG901-1091/1098 modules.  It is already bundled in linux-firmware.
