I would like to update the wlan stuff aka 802_11 to bring the whole wpa and ath
stuff into the tree.
My questions at the moment are
 - is someone working on this part right now?
 - what about the locking of the 802_11 layer?
I think I could do the job in this particular order:

  1. bring 802_11 uptodate
  2. update the existing drivers (wi and so on)
  3. bring the ath driver from -CURRENT to DragonFly
  4. maybe portage of the usb wlan drivers
Has anyone some comments on this items?

best regards,
