IIRC Pavel already explained that getting rid of the HAL per se should be
no problem - it could easily be dissolved into the driver, if that is one
of the requirements to be fulfilled before the driver (MadWifi or DadWifi)
is considered for mainline inclusion. As soon as there is source available
to dissolve, at least.

David's mail refered to exactly that question.
