    Ivo, you could look at Orinoco or Libertas. Both WLAN drivers
    support a multitude of different hardware (Libertas: CF/PCMCIA,
    SDIO, SD, USB and Orinoco: CF/PCMCIA, PCI, PPC_PMAC). And both
    have hardware abstraction layers that don't suck, obfuscate or
    create lots of duplicate code.

    So AFAIK it's not the question *IF* to do hardware abstraction
    but only a question *HOW* to do it in an intelligent way. Don't
    luck at one bad implementation and disregard the whole
    concept :-)
