How do I integrate an ST60 module into an Ubuntu system?

1. Add two modules in the list of blacklist.conf:

vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
blacklist cfg80211
blacklist mac80211

2. Export the kernel settings and build driver:

export KLIB_BUILD=/lib/modules/4.4.0-31-generic/build
export KLIB=/lib/modules/4.4.0-31-generic/kernel

tar xf backports-laird-7.0.0.242.tar.bz2  -C projects/
cd ~/projects/laird-backport-7.0.0.242/
make defconfig-sterling60
make

3. Copy firmware to host and add link file  (here is an example of the PCIE option):

sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/lrdmwl
sudo cp 88W8997_ST_pcie_uart_v5.4.24.1.bin /lib/firmware/lrdmwl/
sudo cp regulatory_sterling60.db /lib/firmware/
cd /lib/firmware/lrdmwl
sudo ln -s 88W8997_ST_pcie_uart_v5.4.24.1.bin 88W8997_pcie.bin
sudo ln -s  /lib/firmware/regulatory_sterling60.db /lib/firmware/regulatory.db

4. Load the drivers:

cd ~/projects/laird-backport-7.0.0.242/
sudo insmod compat/compat.ko
sudo insmod net/wireless/cfg80211.ko
sudo insmod net/mac80211/mac80211.ko
sudo insmod drivers/net/wireless/laird/lrdmwl/lrdmwl.ko
sudo insmod drivers/net/wireless/laird/lrdmwl/lrdmwl_pcie.ko
