The patch looks basically good, there is some on-going work to factor the partitionning on bcm63xx, so we will integrate this as well. The WAG160Nv2 is not the only device using the PID offset actually.

Can you test latest trunk now and see if that works?

Replying to florian:

Can you test latest trunk now and see if that works?

... after adding a ath9k_caldata definition to the board struct for your board name (iirc WAG160N uses 96358GW).

Hi. Since the Wlan calibration data is considered and not overwriten. Does that mean Wlan can work or?
