This is the third version of the patch (against 2.6.23-rc4) adds
the mac80211 based wireless drivers for the Intel PRO/Wireless
3945ABG/BG Network Connection and Intel Wireless WiFi Link AGN (4965)
adapters. You can find it from:

I list the changes against the last version I submitted to the list last
week in case you have reviewed the previous version and only want to see
the diff. You can find the overall patch here:

In this version, we replace the "comiple iwl-base.c twice for two
drivers" scheme with separating the two drivers into two code base. In
the future, we will abstract a common layer for all the iwl based
drivers and make it a separate module for better maintenance.

Note, the #include "../net/mac80211/ieee80211_rate.h" still existed in
this version of the driver. We are discussing how to abstract the
mac80211 rate scaling interface in another thread in this ML.
