Go devicescape stack! er.. mac80211

I know that at least one driver needs it.. the Ralink rt2x00 drivers. The broadcom bcm43xx driver can use it also.

Other drivers could probably benifit from it also. Make them smaller, faster, and support more advanced features.

So how was the userspace stuff resolved with Mac80211? Just through wpa_supplicant or something?

There's also zd1211rw that has been moving to devicescape, and adm8211, rtl818x and apparently ipw3945.

That's great. It would be terrific if Linux wireless woes are effectively solved with this and future driver development can be much easier then it's traditionally been....

yep, the newer iwlwifi driver for the ipw3945 and ipw4965 is using it.

Will ipw2100 and ipw2200 transit to this new WiFi stack ?
