    Great to see Qualcomm upstream some code, I hope they upstream much more.
    Often phones use very old versions of the Linux kernel with out-of-tree patches, and its not possible to upgrade to new kernels.
    I would like to see much better support in the Linux mainline kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip.

        Nice! I think this will help make Wifi work easier for Snapdragon-based laptops.

          WiFi works now even on Linux 5.3.

            Does this mean that the modem will just be a peripheral instead of being the main chip? Lesser vulnerabilities due to AT commands?
