|| ||wireless: recap of current issues (actions)|
|| ||Fri, 13 Jan 2006 17:25:12 -0500|
I need to establish a public git tree for wireless. I would like for
this to be on kernel.org, but I haven't got an account established
there yet. I've been dragging my feet a little, hoping that the
kernel.org account would materialize.
I intend to get the sipsolutions softmac code into the wireless
development kernels ASAP. I hope this will spur driver writers that
need this functionality to start consolidating on the in-kernel stack.
Obviously, what to do with the DeviceScape stack is a pressing issue.
I am open to taking patches to introduce the DeviceScape stack on a
branch under the (still coming) wireless tree. Obviously, patches
that bring features from the DeviceScape stack to the ieee80211 stack
would be generally welcome.
Since we are toying with the issue of multiple stacks (at least in the
wireless development kernels), some thought needs to be done w.r.t. how
to make a final decision between the two stacks. An objective lists
of functional feature requirements seems like a good place to start.
IOW, I would like to have a list of features that would trigger the
removal of one stack shortly after the other stack achieves support
for the list. Is this feasible?
