Sumvision Cyclone X2 (ATV1200 clone) boots with this but the wifi card isn't visible on the USB bus.
I tried adding the driver to modprobe.conf manually but even though it loads it doesn't see the card - which isn't really a surprise since it doesn't show up in lsusb.
It looks like the kernel is trying to use a GPIO pin to control the wifi card power - it logs this at bootup:
[ [email protected]] wifi_dev_probe
[ [email protected]] wifi_dt : interrupt_pin=GPIOX_11
[ [email protected]] wifi_dt : irq_num=null
[ [email protected]] wifi_dt : irq_trigger_type=GPIO_IRQ_HIGH
[ [email protected]] wifi_dt : power_on_pin=GPIOC_7
Is there some way to enable this gpio with the supplied kernel?
I tried searching for a gpio control in /sys/class/gpio but it doesn't look like the kernel has that enabled either.
If I build from source with /sys/class/gpio enabled is it likely to solve my problem? My Linux knowledge is fairly strong so I've no issue building kernels but it'd be quite a faff to set up the build environment if it's not likely to fix it...
Second problem: I'm getting significant and consistent kodi UI freezes: the whole UI locks for perhaps 30 seconds (edit: it's actually every minute, I timed it) at a time, then works for maybe 5 seconds, then locks again. It's a class 10 8GB card, and there's plenty of RAM (it's a 1GB box). There's nothing in /proc/kmsg except spam from the CEC driver which is failing:
[ [email protected]] [amlogic_cec] amlogic_cec_irq_handler(): cec msg status: rx: 0x0; tx: 0x3
[ [email protected]] [amlogic] ##### cec write error! #####
[ [email protected]] [amlogic_cec] dump: msg TX len: 1 dat: 10
I can't imagine that would cause the lockups though?
I pushed debugging to the max and got nothing of any use in the kodi logs, other than at the point where it unfreezes I get this:

Edit: The lockup is only the UI - kodi itself quite happily streams audio or video (DNLA and librespot) without any drops, while I can access the web UI with no problems. That actually means the lockups are less of a problem than it might be, since my plan is to run the box headless anyway.
I appreciate it's an old unit, the simplest answer would be to just throw the box away, but I'd quite like to get it to a useful state so I could stream audio to it over wifi.
Thanks for any pointers you can offer.
