Bug#318494: ITP: ieee80211-source -- Source for the 802.11 (wireless) network stack for Linux

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Mike Hommey <mh@glandium.org>

* Package name    : ieee80211-source
  Version         : 1.0.3
  Upstream Author : James P. Ketrenos <ipw2100-admin@linux.intel.com>
* URL             : http://ieee80211.sf.net/
* License         : GPL v2
  Description     : Source for the 802.11 (wireless) network stack for Linux

 This package provides the source code for the 802.11 (wireless) network
 stack module for the Linux kernel. Though it has been incorporated in
 latest kernel versions, the bundled one might not be up-to-date to build
 third-party wireless modules such as ipw2100 or ipw2200 which are common
 on Centrino notebooks.
 In order to compile these modules you need the kernel sources (or the
 kernel-headers for the kernel-image packages from Debian). For compile
 instructions look into /usr/share/doc/ieee80211-source/README.Debian or
 simply use the module-assistant utility.
 The project's homepage can be found here:

Note : I haven't found a clean solution to deal with the include files
that are needed by the ipw2?00-source packages.
