The stuff in wireless-dev is a collection of drivers (some of which
probably should be merged now) and some mac80211 gorp that is not
yet merge-worthy.  Trust me, I'm trying to get as many items out of
it as possible.

Yeah...<sigh>...yeah...<sigh>...yeah... :-(

But as hch would surely point-out, it is my own laziness at fault...and
driver authors who tremble in fear when I mention merging their
drivers upstream...but, I digress... :-)

I just (minutes ago) finished the mop-up of the patch mess which
had accumulated on me during my KS-related travel and the subsequent
period of catching-up.  (I'm sure I still missed something or botched
something).  I think I can get an -mm suitable patch together within
the next few hours.


P.S.  Andrew, I'll send you a link to a new git-wireless.patch --
I'm sure you don't want a complicated git invocation...  Until then,
I don't think you should try pulling wireless-dev...
