    Not at all. It is simply due to the fact that
    - I started working on the giant diff;
    - patch-scripts (TM) is not too bad to rework (insert/split) patches so
    I do not try to make the patches perfect from the start.

    If there is a specfic tag in the cvs tree which is supposed to be synced
    with the kernel tree at a given time, it could make my life easier though.

    orinoco-rearrange apart, they look nice.

    Minor nit:

    +++ working-2.6/drivers/net/wireless/orinoco.c

    if (sizeof_card)

    + priv->card = (void *)((unsigned long)netdev_priv(dev) + sizeof(struct orinoco_private));

    -> I'd simply turn 'dev->priv' into 'priv'.
