I have the wireless-2.6 tree down and I'm building it now.

First thing I need to figure out is why I can't finish a 250MB copy
over pure 802.11g without dropping the connection. I am getting
hundreds of these in the logs:
kernel: usb 5-1.3: handle_retry_failed_int() retry failed interrupt

If these are dropped packets and the TCP/IP retry mechanism is causing
a retransmit, that would explain a lot of the speed loss. I'll try and
figure out if the packets are really getting lost or if they are
getting lost from a SW bug.

The nodes in my test are 5ft apart with 100% strength, 99% quality at
54M on a clear channel. I would hope that they can exchange packets
without dropping them.
