This might be perceived as a rant by some people, so this is a
Was there any specific reason for using the *BSD implementation of
802.11 besides the fact that the driver code used it in some places?
Has anybody given a thought to using the driver with the linux-wlan-ng
802.11 implementation? IMHO, that implementation is much more 'Linuxy'
and might I dare to say - easier to understand - since it uses
keywords/phrases from the 802.11 spec. I understand that originally
their developers were against the "wireless extensions", but they have
come around to accept that now.
How difficult would it be to get the madwifi drivers to use the
linux-wlan-ng implementation of 802.11? If successful, it would have a
nice side-effect of getting some sort of a 'standard' 802.11
implementation on Linux.
