I just found a driver for "Dongle BUS interface for USB, SDIO, SPI,
etc." which seams to also support the BCM43231 licensed under a
permissive license in the GPL source tar of the ASUS RT-AC66U. [0] I
haven't found the firmware for that specific device, but someone could
try to get that driver running with a normal Linux kernel. I am also
interested in that as I have a USB device in my router not supported by
brcmfmac.
Currently I do not have time for that, but I will probably have a closer
look into that driver soon.
