Until now I used the madwifi net80211 stack. This what I offer for
download, and what I get feedback on from people using the driver.

Pete was alone porting the driver to the in-kernel softmac, much to my
shame. The port does not seem complete at the moment - it doesn't seem
to work right with Pete's devices at least, and I have not tested it on
mine. My plan to help Pete for the in-tree softmac port (there are
protocol subtleties which are not documented and cause problems), and
then propose for mainline inclusion under Pete's guidance.

But i'm not fast.
