This is now fixed on the master branch, also the branch "for-upstream"
does a lot of cleanup I thought you may like before stuffing it into
staging like removing all KERNEL_VERSION checks, all wireless
extensions checks, some compile warnings, removal of compat, dos2unix,
use utf-8, etc. Unfortunately this still requires a specific version
of wpa_supplicant but it seems it works. Not sure what bars you have
for staging at this point.

Will you take this in, and expect patches for fixing it to use
standard wext and also report standard wireless statistic (yeap, this
is not there yet either).

Joey is one user which reported the driver working now with the
compile fixes for newer kernels for 2.6.28-rc2 using the specific
version of wpa_supplicant for it.

Joey can you test the for-upstream branch on otus git?
