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:
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.
