I pushed this now to the pending branch of wireless-drivers-next for
build testing, let's see what kind of results we get. I didn't manage to
do a thorough review yet, but few quick comments:

This is supposed to be in alphabetical order.

And this one as well. Clearly I missed these with quantenna, but no need
to redo the same mistake with purelife. Also patches welcome to fix

The documentation here is not telling much. I think it goes without
saying that a firmware is needed, so no need to mention it. And also
"normal WLAN interface" is a standard upstream requirement so drop that
as well. Instead describe here in detail what hardware this driver
supports, for example exact product names, bus types, wifi/ieee

Didn't you rename it to plfxlc?
