Hi Dave & Jeff,

The attached .bz2 file is a patch for 2.6.3 adding the
Intersil Prism54 wireless driver. Sorry for the attachement, the file
is rather big, if you want inline+plaintext, I'll send that personal
to you.
I've been using this driver with great success on 2.6.3 and
2.6.4-rc1 (SMP). This driver support various popular CardBus and PCI
802.11g cards (54 Mb/s) based on the Intersil PrismGT/PrismDuette
I would like this driver to go into 2.6.X. However, I
understand that it's lot's of code to review.

Here's a few things I found.

I'm forwarding to prism54-devel where the real developpers can
answer your questions.

since I'm not on the this list, I am getting a bunch of "your message for prism54-devel awaits moderator approval" responses.

Maybe the prism54 and hostAP developers could join us on netdev? It would be nice to have everybody in one place, if we're all gonna be collaborating on a generic 802.11 stack.
