BTW -- while we're on the topic of 2.6.32 and the next Debian release,
and 802.11, do you guys ship iw by default yet? If not I highly
encourage it. It should be shipped just as iwconfig is shipped. iw is
the replacement for iwconfig, it uses the new nl80211 and nl80211 is
used by all cfg80211 and mac80211 drivers. All new upstream drivers
have to be cfg80211 based (or mac80211) so hence why I recommend to
just ship iw by default today.
