    251251=== NRC7292 kernel driver
    252 The Silex SX-NEWAH module on the GW16146 has a Newracom NRC7292 and thus is mostly supported by Newracom's open-source driver. However, the Newracom driver assumes a SoC GPIO is used for SPI IRQ and in the case of the GW16146 this does not exist. Therefore a SPI polling feature was added to the driver therefore Gateworks has its own [https://github.com/Gateworks/nrc7292 nrc7292] driver.
