    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
