NACK. I am currently using this driver as a template for the development of a
mainline rtl8187se driver. Removing the staging version would not matter to me,
but it would complicate matters for my tester (Bernhard Schiffner
<bernhard@...iffner-limbach.de>). I do not have the hardware, thus I rely on his
help.
