done, I would hope to get the code merged into the kernel tree either
with full Host AP driver or separately. One option would be to first add
Host AP driver in its current structure (i.e., everything in
drivers/net/wireless) and then create a new directory (net/ieee80211 ?)
for generic IEEE 802.11 functionality and start moving things like the
IEEE 802.11 encryption into the new location.

Given the discussion today, I think my preference is to merge all of HostAP into the wireless-2.6 tree I just created, then submit patches to that which create and populate net/802_11. Once the work on that is mostly done, it can get merged back into the main upstream tree.
