I see my initial response wasn't so excellent after all :-(
I guess my googling was insufficiently thorough, or I misread something. I certainly didn't
think to double-check chipset revision numbers.
On seeing these links, my initial feeling is that I should *help* fill the gap in OpenHAL, but
I don't know the first thing about wifi internals ... by the time I get up to speed (in the
meantime trashing my 100% working toy), someone else will likely have finished the job.
So the real question is, how hardcore a geek do I want to be, today? Is this a challenge I'm
inexorably called to?
And the answer is ... not much. I like my eee as it is. I have no call to hassle LKML with
dmesgs from my tainted kernel :-/
