First off, thanks for the work put into this driver. I'm sure it
wasn't a walk in the park.

As per the Subject line I'm trying to get a USB Wifi device working on
the Sharp Zaurus (a Linux sub-sub-laptop).

I started a thread on the OESF forum, if you want to read it first:

Someone who has the kernel source and a compile environment was kind
enough to compile the driver for me.
I'm running a 2.6.16 kernel with the pdaXrom R198 distro. Because it
no 2.6.18 or better he had to compile the one that was not supported.

I've installed the kernel module and according to dmesg it looks like
it loads OK:
usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

ZD1211B - version
vendor_id = 0ace
product_id = 1215
USB 1.1 Host
Release Ver = 4810
EEPORM Ver = 4810
Finsih download Firmware. Ready to reboot
PA type: 0
PHYNEWLayout = 1
Airoha AL2230S_RF
OverWrite CR47 = 0x1C
zd1205_config: EEP(HWFeature)=0x580
AllowedChannel = 000107ff
usbcore: registered new driver zd1211b

I've typed the following, but it still just keeps blinking and never
connects to the AP:
modprobe -v zd1211b
ifconfig eth0 up
iwconfig eth0 rate 2000kb
iwconfig eth0 channel 11
iwconfig eth0 essid linksys
iwpriv eth0 set_mac_mode 3
iwconfig eth0 mode 2

(I read that I can't changed the channel while in managed mode... why is that?)

if I try and run "dhcpd eth0", it blinks for a bit and then seems to
down the eth0 device

If I look at dmesg after I've tried connecting to an AP it starts out by saying:
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
Wait too long to start scanning

then is says a lot of:
ZD1211_TX_BUSY is locked over 5 seconds
jiffies = 1817302, lastSetBusy = 1815785, HZ=100
(the above two lines repeat many times with only the jiffies and
lastSetBusy numbers changing)

then near the bottom I get (FYI, might have been around when I
unplugged the device):
macp is NULL or macp.flags.ZD1211_RUNNING
Wait too long to start scanning
soc: WM8750 <-> pxa2xx-i2s info
soc: rate mask 0x6fe
soc: min ch 2 max ch 2
soc: min rate 8000 max 96000
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
Call StartSTA(IBSS or AP)

Any advice would be appreciated!
