that's specious... they can put "supported by Linux" on their products by
supplying a binary-only driver too... ndiswrapper is orthogonal to that

on a tangent... has there been any further research/work on page
clustering? wli's patches haven't been updated in a while... it's another
way to supply larger stacks. (hell with 16KiB "pages" i'd be stoked to
"waste" the bottom 4KiB of each stack with an unmapped page to ensure
overflow is detected.)
