[new port] systuils/gobi_loader: Firmware Loader for Qualcomm Gobi USB Chipsets

Authored by on Dec 27 2019, 9:09 PM.



Many people are still using this old piece of software but it's still missing in the ports tree. For source is used a trimmed fork of known to be working for years project. Original probably never worked on FreeBSD.

Test Plan

Initial version. Needs more testing and quality assurance.

share/examples/devd/gobi_loader.conf.sample might be a better idea as it's not going to work out of box due to missing firmware?

7 ↗(On Diff #66038)

Is it possible to avoid hardcoding /dev/cuaU0?
/boot/firmware/gobi/ should probably be /usr/local/lib/firmware? (use ports path variables)

Multiple typos and what should the firmware file name be? added inline comments.

Not sure why the line shifted but I meant GH_PROJECT=

Removed GH_PROJECT= and a few whitespaces; reachable e-mail address of port maintainer added.

So what's the status of this port?

I have updated patch to clarify how to obtain firmware files. Port builds and works 100% fine. It was tested with portilint and poudriere testport.

imp added inline comments.

This could use another tab indent...

But I'll fix that when committing.
