Thanks for your e-mail. Indeed, I just compiled a 2.6.27-rc2 kernel and
it worked fine on x86-64 at least, which is a good thing. The only small
problem that I see is that the activity led doesn't blink when the
interface is sending or receiving data.

Regarding PowerPC, unfortunately, my iBook's battery died and I will get
a replacement to it (as soon as I can afford it). I also have yet to
find some time to compile a kernel for it, but I am happy to report the
results that I get (compiling the kernel will be easy, but installing on
it will take me some time as my Linux installation on it seems to be
messed up).

Ok, I see it. There were lots of changes in mac80211 too, from a quick
glance at the patch.


Thanks, Rogério Brito.
