we had wireless-dev for 2.6.19, but I had no idea about your work for  
2.6.20. Actually I wanted to integrate Jon Smirl's patch, but there  
was already the fix in wireless-2.6.

I would like to use the name wireless-2.6, because that indicates  
better, that it is against wireless-2.6. Notify that Jon has called  
the descape/d80211 tree wireless-dev. So wireless-dev might not be  
the most prudent choice.

However wireless-2.6 includes only a single patch, so it shouldn't be  
to difficult to use wireless-dev.

I know that we have discussed already, but I suggest again to move  
also with the softmac-based driver to in-tree development. It would  
certainly save time. I would still create a tar tree, that could be  
compiled outside of the kernel.

Regarding the known issues of my master tree. I admit there are  
problems with the AL2230 RF, which doesn't work very well for me with  
or without the signal strength handling. There are no such issues  
with the RF2959. How about doing signal strength handling only for  
RF2959? without softmac-patches is not a good setup, because  
deauthentication is not handled. It should also be noted, that  
calling ieee80211_rx in hard irq context might create problems in  
specific setups. This is fixed in my tree.

Kind regards,
