How difficult is it to port the latest FMAC to an older kernel (say 4.9.11), to be used o i.MX 6UL, Murata 1DX. Are there any guides I can use?

With your case, you need to do backporting. Cypress offers packages for backporting in their fmac releases, and Murata integrated it in our Linux solution for older kernels, i.e. 4.9.123, 4.9.88, 4.9.11, and 4.1.15. For these versions of Linux Kernel,  you can simply run Murata's build script, and it will do the backporting and build the image for you. To learn more about how backporting is implemented, please refer to Murata's Linux user manual.

If your kernel version is not supported by Murata, please refer to the README file in Cypress' fmac release. You can find the steps for backporting there.

Hello Romit Chatterjee,

This Quick Start Guide may help. These modules are manufactured and supported by Murata. Kernel 4.9.11 is supported fortunately.

I hope this helps!
