What do you mean by that?

There's firmware for the 8361 out there, however, that version of
the firmware implements a firmware API that is different from the
one that mwl8k currently implements.

You could add 8361 support to mwl8k, but then you'd have to go over
all the firmware command invocations in mwl8k and make sure that they
will work on the 8361 firmware that you're trying to support as well.
