 There is a custom kernel sys/arch/amd64/conf/SEVEN_WIFI that can be used as a template for amd64 kernels. Here is an example of a GENERIC.local for evbarm GENERIC kernels:  There is a custom kernel sys/arch/amd64/conf/SEVEN_WIFI but you can also use
   GENERIC and copy the "no ..." lines from SEVEN_WIFI to GENERIC.local. The
   evbarm GENERIC kernel will work if you create GENERIC.local files like the following:

 After booting into the new system you will notice that no wlan devices show up in ifconfig -a output. Instead you can see the wlan devices in sysctl output:  After booting into the new system you will notice that no wlan devices show up in ifconfig -a output.
