I've attached a gzipped version of my Wireless Security Lock patch
for v2.6.13-rc4.
A Wireless Security Lock (WSL or weasel :-) is made up of two parts.
One part is a receiver which you plug into any available USB port.
The other part is a transmitter which at fixed intervals sends
"ping packets".
A "ping packet" usually consists of an ID and a flag telling if the
transmitter has just been turned on.
Both devices lights up in a nice way when a "ping packet" is send/
The whole idea of this is that when the transmitter is brought out
of range one could have a process (such as xscreensaver) lock the
The WSL is a toy gadget.

For more information see:


The WSL driver touches these files:

drivers/usb/Makefile (1 line)
drivers/usb/input/Kconfig (10 lines)
drivers/usb/input/Makefile (1 line)
drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c (2 lines)
drivers/usb/input/wsl.c (224 lines)

This is my first driver for Linux - feel free to harass me if I am
not following procedures or you think the driver is lame. Better still,
educate me :-)
