This driver is not working yet. Scanning almost works but a lot more work remains to be done. So far most of the porting work was done by myself, with some help from mpi, patrick, and kettenis. Obviously this driver remains disabled for now. Enable relevant lines in the kernel config if you want to help out with development. At present firmware files must be obtained manually and placed in the directory /etc/firmware/qwx/WCN6855/hw2.1/ This will be improved later. Thanks to the OpenBSD Foundation for supporting this effort.
So summing up, thanks to support from the OpenBSD Foundation, work on support for this popular hardware has started, and is progressing towards useable status.
It's not quite there yet, but this being early in the cycle, there is reason to hope for official support status by the time of the upcoming release.
