There certainly isn't; with all the whining I've been doing over the
past two years about unified interfaces, we're not going to let a driver
through with Yet Another 802.11 Stack.  Sheesh, at least look at the
thing first.

The part is a mostly fullmac part that until now has been targetted at
the embedded market (PSP, N80 phone, etc).  That means that the driver
shouldn't be too large (airo is about 8000 kLOC without airo_cs) but for
some reason it still is; we're working on that.

But could we please be constructive here, and actually take a look at
the driver and point out problems?

Cheers,
Dan

[1] I've done a fair amount of work on this driver along with Marcelo
