== Impact ==
The WIFI LED of Marvell 88W8897 is not enabled by default
(there's no code for controlling LED in mwifiex). It is
requested to be ON and OFF when the radio is on and off

== Fix ==
The LEDs are connected to GPIO pins on the Marvell
WiFi/Bluetooth combo module, thus they can only be controlled
via firmware.

== Test Case ==
# ifconfig wlan0 [on|off]
and see if the LEDs work properly.

== Risk of Regression ==
PCI sub IDs of the host bridge are used to determine if we're
really running on an Edge Gateway, and we already have these
patches in Xenial kernels quite a while. Risk should be reasonably
