Hi John.

Other than the somewhat useful code style cleanups, is there
a point at which you will feel comfortable doing actual code
changes to this driver?

Perhaps support for the chipset could be converted to use
mac80211 and moved into the directory with the other realtek
drivers in drivers/net/wireless/realtek/rtl8xxxu/...

Larry?  What do you think?
