Okay, glad to do that, and super glad for your interest and offer.

The diff which was committed in line with your suggestion:

The new package is at:

I should also point out, that there is another wireless related userspace
component that we will require in the future for control of regulatory domain
related stuff, CRDA [0]. It seems like more of a work-in-progress though, but
it won't be too long until new upstream Linux versions, and iw, can make use of
