Also, I'm not clear how the stuff in wireless-2.6 is supposed
to trickle into the other trees (netdev-2.6, -mm and Linus's), and how
to better link it with the CVS of the various drivers involved.
Less of a trickle than a flood: wireless-2.6 should be the target for
development of shared wireless stack code. As several drivers are
currently using bits of HostAP, for example, wireless-2.6 should be a
focal point for patches that modify these drivers to instead share the

Beides wpa_supplicant from hostap code (which is actually going into
WE18) what other code re-use is on the roadmap as of yet for wireless-2.6?
Intel Centrino driver is re-using chunks of HostAP, and I'm looking at
doing so for the RealTek 8180 driver I am about to publish.
Also who is coordinating this?
