I guess the callback change will go through Greg's tree? Then I suspect
it's easier that you submit the callback change to Greg first and wait
for it to trickle down to wireless-drivers-next (after the next merge
window) and then I can apply the driver patches. Otherwise there might
be a conflict between my and Greg's tree.
