Just to be clear, this is not just about adding a wlan interface. Since
you're the one with the board, I pointed you to look at JeOS-nanopineo
as template to create a JeOS-nanopineoair image - don't expect the image
for another board to just work for you. LEDs are one of the most common
things to differ between boards, compared to serial ports.
Quick follow-up -
it was a little tricky, but at least the nanopi neo air is now running
with the ubuntu core image as provided by friendlyarm. For the wifi
interface, it's using a "bcmdhd" module from
wireless/bcm4336/bcmdhd.ko - afaict, that is not included in the
openSUSE JeOS image? For my purposes, I can no doubt make it work with
Ubuntu, but I'd much rather be running openSUSE :-)
The upstream driver is called brcmfmac - you may need to extend our
bcm43xx-firmware package with the NVRAM config file for your board.
As usual, each board will need its own u-boot-* package (if it's in
mainline, it's trivial to enable as package; but apparently it isn't), a
.dtb file in a dtb-* package for our kernel version (again nope) and
then the JeOS additions to install those packages into an image.
In the meantime you should create an HCL:Nano_Pi_Neo_Air Wiki page to
track any package or upstream dependencies for creating that image.
