Make sure you're using the patched version that uses half duplex transfers as the onion cannot do full duplex SPI

RE: Custom Device Tree with CAN controller (MCP2515)
"Package libiwinfo required!" error message on LuCI
I'm trying to figure out the cause of this error message when changing the wireless settings in the openwrt web interface. I'm compiling the image myself keeping the installed software as close as possible to the standard minimal image. I've just disabled onionOS and enabled the LuCI web interface.
I've confirmed that libiwinfo is installed, but interestingly if I then try and install libiwinfo using opkg it seems to work fine afterwards. I don't know if there is a bug in the version that is in the onion repository. Any idea on how I could solve this? I can't install it using opkg every time as the final manufacturing will be out of my hands
Onion compiled libiwinfo version: 2018-07-24-94b1366d-1
Openwrt repository (opkg install) version: 2018-07-31-65b8333f-1
Even with the openwrt repository version working, none of the wifi settings seem to load properly, and it only thinks it's capable of WEP encryption
RE: Bring out the MT7688's ethernet switch pins onto GPIOs
I think I'm closer to the answer. It seems to lie in the register AGPIO_CFG at address 0x1000003C. It switches the GPIOs 14 through 29 between the digital pins and the analog ethernet counterparts. Would this modification to AGPIO be done in the DTSI file, some bootloader/kernel parameter or do I need to make a patch to something somewhere?
I'm aware I could use something like devmem to directly set this register from userspace but I assume there is something a bit cleaner?
Bring out the MT7688's ethernet switch pins onto GPIOs
From what I understand, the omega's MT7688 has an inbuilt 5 port ethernet switch, where one of these ports is natively brought out onto the omega's pins. There are more ports that can be enabled on GPIOs 14 through 29. I would assume these are enabled through changing the pin multiplexing settings through the device tree file, but I'm struggling to see where this change would be made. I've looked at other routers DTS files using the same processor to find where the change may be, but I've not found the difference. Am I looking in the right place for this? Is it just a case of disabling the I2C and other interfaces or is there something more? I assume there may be as GPIO 14-18 aren't used by any other interfaces but the functionality isn't there. Maybe it's by not loading the GPIO driver on those pins?
The other concern is that I see in the CPU's datasheet it mentions both IoT mode and gateway mode but doesn't mention anything further about these modes. Are they just referencing different use cases?
Has anyone else managed to successfully accomplish this?
