How difficult would it be to port the ral driver from FreeBSD?

In googling I saw someone mentioned that the 
difficulty lie in the fact that the 802.11 stack had
changed from FreeBSD 4 to FreeBSD current, 
and I know that the networking stack has been
under a lot of work recently, especially as work
has been done to make it MP-clean. How different
are the interfaces, and How much would transfer
over. I've never worked on device drivers before, 
but I'm a fair C programmer, and I have some time
on my hands. I'm willing to do most of the work if
someone is willing to point me in the right direction
and answer some questions.
