Sorry, that was my bad. I thought that the Devicescape code found its
way to the kernel (didn't follow the discussion some months ago too
closely). Although I think there probably are better alternatives to the
802.11 stack that is in the kernel right now, having a central 802.11
stack at all is a great improvement that should be used where possible.

That depends. If the encouraging is about an alternative, more complete
and superior 802.11 stack for Linux which could be integrated with less
effort than extending the existing code, that should be worth to talk

Please note that I'm not refering here to any of the related suggestions
which have been made during the past months - it's a general statement.

Bye, Mike
