No, it's due to the fact that someone decided to merge an old version of
the ieee80211 subsystem into Linus' tree:

commit 279385949ebb41ad166fd37505fe552cdb74ed59
Author: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>
Date: Sun Jun 19 01:27:20 2005 +0200

[PATCH] bring over ieee80211.h from mainline

the prototypes and inlines aren't actually needed, but let's not diverge
from -mm too far.

This version of the ieee80211 subsystem is incompatible with current
ipw2100/ipw2200 drivers and break the compilation of these.

Sincerely,
Brix
