Document that Wi-Fi doesn't work anymore with Marvell Avastar 88W8897 chipset
A user reported that the wi-fi stopped working since at least tails 3.6.2 on a Surface Pro (2017).
the chipset is Marvell Avastar 88W8897 WLAN/BT/NFC SoC
The user reports that after typing in the passphrase for the network, the passphrase is asked again, and so on. The issue was present for several networks (whose the user had the passphrase I suppose).
The issue was not present on a Tails device installed this summer (so with a 4.9 kernel).
Another user is affected:
- Tails 3.2 works
- Tails 3.5 is affected
- SurfaceBook (2015/16 model)
- Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88W8897 [AVASTAR] 802.11ac Wireless
- logs were sent from Tails 3.2 so they’re useless
- no email address
