        Hi Jeff,

        This is version 18 of the Wireless Extensions. The main change
is that it adds all the necessary APIs for WPA and WPA2 support. This
work was entirely done by Jouni Malinen, so let's thank him for both
his hard work and deep expertise on the subject ;-)
        This APIs obviously doesn't do much by itself and works in
concert with driver support (Jouni already sent you the HostAP
changes) and userspace (Jouni is updating wpa_supplicant). This is
also orthogonal with the ongoing work on in-kernel IEEE support (but
potentially useful).
        The patch is attached, tested with 2.6.11. Normally, I would
ask you to push that directly in the kernel (99% of the patch has been
on my web page for ages and it does not affect non-WPA stuff), but
Jouni convinced me that it should bake a few weeks in wireless-2.6
first, so that other driver maintainers can get up to speed with it.

        So, would you mind pushing that in wireless-2.6 ?
        Thanks in advance...

Applied to wireless-2.6, and will soon push upstream.

NOTE:  Please include a Signed-off-by line in ALL patches that you submit.
