More importantly there's the update to the wireless extensions v15
interface. That accounts for by far the largest part of the current
diff. I've been procrastinating about separating out that change and

I already have another handful of patches lined up ready to go.
Mostly a few more trivialities.
How about I send those to Jeff today, then feel free to tease out some
more pieces and send them on on top of those. Just make sure you tell
