'make' builds a set of sources compatible with the running kernel (or 
the one pointed to via KSRC=).

'make patch_kernel' will then install the sources into your kernel tree. 
  You then build d80211 as part of your main kernel (either as a module 
or static)  The changes 'patch_kernel' makes do not require a full 
kernel rebuild (you can just build the 80211 modules).

We'll want to add the ability to build as out-of-tree .ko's (similar to 
what iwlwifi does) but I wanted to get the project announced.

Now that you point it out, I hadn't tried using KSRC w/ the iwlwifi 
build, just d80211.  I'll have to fix that :)
