[rt2x00-users] [PATCH 0/3] rt2x00: import SoC-hacks from OpenWrt.org

On embedded systems built-in or PCIe connected WiFi modules usually lack their
own EEPROM and use a mtd partition instead of that. In OpenWrt, this is solved
by requesting a firmware and the handling the resulting hotplug call in
userspace which will then extract the needed file from mtd and supply it to
the driver.
In other cases, PCIe modules might come with an EEPROM, but yet some
board-specific hacks are required, such as disabling bands or overriding the
modules MAC address with a board-supplied one.

The original author of those patches is Gabor Juhos.
According to his remarks, 3 patches related to overriding the whole eeprom and
introducing rt2x00_platform.h were merged into a single patch.

Daniel Golle (3):
  rt2x00: allow overriding eeprom through platform_data
  rt2x00: allow disabling bands through platform_data
  rt2x00: add platform_data mac address
