I'm involved i some other wireless driver projects. This MIMO
stuff is fairly new, don't just expect that it 'will work' just
because you could buy the card at a store. Normally for these
projects there is a huge gap between the product is released for
sales and the actual support within Linux.
Please remember that the madwifi is a total reverse engineered
driver and not supported by Atheros.
If you want to blame someone for this, blame Atheros for not
Supporting the Linux OpenSource Community. Not us.
