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 :-/

My attitude is, hey, it's not very expensive, and this gives me an excuse 
to learn enough kernel hacking/reverse-engineering fu to help :)
