7 000-linux_mips.patch
8 This is the diff between vanilla linux-2.4.32 and linux-mips.org kernel
9 (CVS tag 2_4_32-rc1 used). The kernel source from linux-mips.org CVS repository has
10 newer drivers and code then vanilla linux-2.4.32 especially for the mips architecture.

75 brcm/
76 Broadcom specific patches
77
78 001-bcm47xx.patch
79 This is the broadcom specific code from asus (1941) GPL source tarball.
80 There are many small patches included, so it works with linux 2.4.32 kernel.
81 The original code is based on Linux 2.4.20.
82
83 002-wl_fix.patch
84 The driver for the wireless lan chip on brcm47xx based routers is binary only.
85 This means it depends on older data structures in the kernel. We backported some
86 of the changes or changed some of the data structures to work with the binary modul.
87 This is a really bad hack, but without source code, there is no better chance to get
88 the driver working with newer kernels.
