Message-ID: <7c093622-e798-3887-323e-781e2f70b0b8@bda.space> (raw)

I have this issue on my two pcengines APs, one ALIX and one APU2. I 
created some dkms modules for patched ath9k/10k, setting the regdomain 
to CTRY_DEFAULT rather than 0x64. For me this results in US region, not 
sure if it will do the right thing in other regions or not. But you 
could use this as a starting point, and way better than rebuilding 
kernel from scratch each time:

https://github.com/bd4/athregd-dkms

I created trees for 5.10 from Debian Bullseye and for Ubuntu HWE 5.11 
kernel. This is based on tips and DKMS config from sparks71. At one 
point I tried a patch that added a region module parameter, but I got 
kernel faults and never got it to work - the CTRY_DEFAULT fix was 
simpler for me. You can see the patch here:
