I would say this has been more due to lack of time than unwillingness on
my part. Finally, I got git set up yesterday and got back to working
with the wireless-2.6/netdev-2.6 code and I'm planning on working with
the Host AP and ieee80211 code merge. I would expect the client side
functionality to be relatively easy merge, but the AP side functionality
may require considerable amount of work due to the current ieee80211
code being more focused on the client side.
