General Hardware Enablement of WiFi & Bluetooth Using Trim Slice

Project Description

Most of the devices fedora supports actually only use a small amount of the hardware that is on the device. Whether it is something simple like graphics and sound or more complex features such as GYRO, GPS, FM Radio, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. There's also some other devices that would be interesting to support like the Snowball, Origen, or even the Vivaldi Tablet. Some definitely need FW and hence probably packaging if it's not in the linux-firmware dumping ground. Having considered all of this information, it is our intention to enable WiFi & Bluetooth on the Trim Slice board using Fedora 17 as our platform.
