As you have discovered, it is highly unlikely that you can just add
the device to pci devs and use the current iwn driver to make it
work.  I would expect that the interface to the firmware on the card
is slightly different, requiring different command structures.  This
can happen even between versions of firmware on the same hardware.  I
am not sure how different our iwn driver is from the OpenBSD one these
days, perhaps patching in the card specific code from their driver
would be possible.
