Bug Description

Support latest Redpine WLAN/BT RS9113 driver in Ubuntu Xenial kernel.

This is the latest version of the driver provided by Redpine. For now, this driver is enabled only on x86, x86_64 architectures. The impact is also restricted to { SDIO_DEVICE(0x041B, 0x9330) } chipsets.

For linux-oem (4.15) bionic series:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
To support RS9113 Wifi+BT chip on Dell Edge 300x IoT Gateways. Most of the
patches are already upstream (either Accepted or under review) and being
tracked here:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-wireless/list/?state=*&q=rsi%3A

SAUCE patches have been tested by Canonical CE-QA (based on
Ubuntu-4.15.0-16.17) and HWE is working with the Redpine to get them
upstreamed to linux-wireless. For now, to meet the project schedule, we'll
have to carry them in linux-oem.

The impact is limited to the Redpine RS9113 Wifi+BT with following VID/PID
{ SDIO_DEVICE(0x041B, 0x9330) }.

This bug is used for tracking purposes, please do not triage.
