This summarises my current thinking on various patches which are presently
in -mm. I cover large things and small-but-controversial things. Anything
which isn't covered here (and that's a lot of material) is probably a "will

I'd like to ask about 802.11 stack and ipw2100 in particular... Is it
"small enough that it did not need mentioning"?
Working wireless in mainline would be great...

That's up to Jeff.

802.11 stack is still too ipw-specific.

Someone needs to get together another driver using 802.11 stack (such as HostAP, the original location of much of the code).

So, the merge criteria is: something other than ipw uses it.

Otherwise, it'll never be generic...

Jeff, who has several SuSE wireless patches to merge still
