The Debian 2.6.24 kernels have it, too, but it is only available if you
select "Networking > Wireless > Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack
(mac80211)" first. This is a relatively new option, so might not be

"Networking" above is in the main menu, before "Device Drivers" (to
avoid confusion with "Network device support" within the Device Drivers
