[Librem-5-dev] Wifi partially working

With the latest 4.18 kernel [1] you can get Wifi partially working on
the dev-kit. To do so one of the diversity antennas needs to be
disconnected. Disconnect the antenna furthest from the hold down nut and
leave the center plug connected ( the one closest to the nut ).

There are still some issues but throughput should be in the Mbits/sec now.


1) connections take a very long time ( > 10 seconds )

2) null pointer dereference occasionally


3) Can't scan while connected to an access point. Need to disconnect first.
