Ok, so in my zeal to get the kernel orinoco drivers to _not_ _suck_,
what branch is the most up-to-date? Have you been commiting the stuff
here that you say is "committed to CVS" to _both_ HEAD and for_linus?
The things I care about (to bring orinoco drivers up to par with others
like prism54 & aironet):
1) Scanning support
2) monitor mode
3) the better firmware handling
