It's a linux driver, so you have to port the linux interface-y bits
too and whatever else is missing.

You also have to be careful that you don't fall afoul of any RCU style
patents. One of the many reasons why mac80211 from linux hasn't been
ported over is that it contains RCU code.

I have a very basic probe/attach working. My next task is implementing
their "transaction" layer that speaks to various busses (although the
only thing they currently ship in Linux is PCIe.) I'm kind of hoping
that once I've implemented that, porting the rest of the driver won't
be so terrible-sounding.
