A key goal I have for HostAP is that portions of HostAP code should be bundled into a generic "lib80211" kernel module, for use by various low-level and "softmac" 802.11 device drivers.


This sentence made me curious... does that mean the efforts which recently have been discussed here (to bring a generic 802.11 stack to the kernel) are going to be replaced by the described goal? Or is it an addition to Vladimir's work?

Hopefully Vladmir's work will plug right in.. I hope he's still working on it!
