    Subject[PATCH] Add libertas_disablemesh module parameter to disable mesh interface
    Date
    This allows individual users and deployments to disable mesh support at
    runtime, i.e. without having to build and maintain a custom kernel.

    Based on a patch by Paul Fox <pgf@laptop.org>.

    The patch is based on the OLPC 2.6.35 kernel tree, but applies cleanly to
    wireless-next.
