We would like to see our Atheros 802.11n USB Linux driver upstream
however we need help with this so we are releasing our Atheros 11n USB
Otus Linux driver under the ISC to the community. The goal is to work
with the community to help move this forward upstream. We are hoping
for community help and leadership on this (*cough*).

In the meantime users should be able to use this driver and patches
are welcomed to add newer wireless extension support so users on newer
kernels can get their devices working. The focus should be upstream
though :)

Anyway, some more details.
