Sorry for the large cross post, just seeing if someone is interested
in working on a wireless driver. The task would be to try to get
AR5523 USB driver up to speed with mac80211 from wireless-testing and
giving it a shot to fix remaining issues?
It seems to have compiled last for 2.6.23.
If you're interested please remove all lists and only leave
linux-wireless on the reply.
