HI all,

we are integrating atheros AR9882 WIFI Chipset via MiniPCI-Express 1.1 host interface on P1020-WLAN Board, for this we backported ath10k driver for kernel 2.6.32. after inserting the drivers we are getting following PCI errors.

You are using a kernel that is really ages old. I don't think we can share any experience with it and modern radio cards. Based on the error your kernel throws, there is insufficient space in the PCI window. Normally, u-Boot sets

much larger PCI windows than the space you device requests. The suggestions are:

1. Check what windows your u-Boot allocates to PCI

2. Check your device tree "ranges" property to make sure they

   are properly reflect the size of the window allocated by u-Boot.

   Details can be found here:

3. If everything looks correct but still no luck, debug the kernel.

Have a great day,
