Summary     : Firmware for Marvell Libertas USB 8388 Network Adapter
Description :
Firmware for Marvell Libertas USB 8388 Network Adapter

Update Information:

Wireless firmware release 5.110.20.p49

Fix for #5194:
                In some cases firmware fails to return association
(command code 0x50) response back to the driver
                locking up command task.

New feature:    Send probe response only in ad-hoc mode with max 2 probe
                per probe request.

Fix for #5194:
                The following symptom has been fixed.
                 1. iwlist ethX scan returned no result
                 2. iwconfig returned normally
                 3. Both LEDs off
                 4. iwpriv mshX fwt_time returned bad address.

                 There was a problem in association state machine causing
command task to go
                 into busy state --returning busy to all the commands.
                 The command execution is serialized within firmware, and
certain command
                 execution involves multiple tasks within firmware. The
moment that the management
                 task, which handles association, posted results to
command task, before
                 finishing current execution, the command task started
another command execution,
                 while management task was still busy with previous
command resulting
                 association state machine into bad state.

Fix for #5461:
                 Do not return busy (0x4) command response to host for
internal commands such as
                 mesh auto start enable.
