"IF" you know that trying to fix any wired bugs in certain drivers
(e.g. ipw, ral) will require you to read through all of the vendor's
linux code (yes, even including register values and position), i.e.
there is not much difference between writing one from scratch and
porting+fixing_bugs, then you probably will not put "IF" at the start
of your sentence.
If what I said sounded too harsh to you, then I was sorry.

Will do, once generic 11n support is brought in from freebsd.
