I am working on porting AR6K linux driver to non-OS device running on 16-bit device or 32-bit device. Is there we can use HTC_RAW_INTERFACE for sending/receiving data packest. In this application throughput is not required. We can write an application that can take data directly from buffer and call WMI interface directly or call HTC_RAW_INTERFACE directly.

This might not be the best venue for discussing the Linux driver code.
I think you would need to work at the WMI layer to get much meaningful 802.11 info.

Thanks.
Do you mean direct data handling to WMI?
I think this would be better. But how can we handle TCP/IP interface or will WMI do packetization by calling TCP/IP stack and finally handover to HTC?

The TCP/IP layer is above WMI. TCP/IP is not directly handled in the driver.
