I don't remember any major changes in the WDS code.. Anyway, I don't
have dwl900 and thus, I cannot easily verify what could be wrong.
Anyway, if you sent me a sniffer dump of any problem cases you see, I
can take a quick look to verify whether I can easily find a reason for
interoperability issues. Please include some kind of description of
which mac address belongs to which device and firmware/driver versions,
