I can help out with the mpi350 if you'd like.  However, most of the code
for the MPI350 should be exactly the same as with the PCMCIA version of
the card.  They share just about everything except for the bus type.
(unless I'm wrong?)

Note that I added ENCODEEXT and AUTH support (for WEP only of course) in
a previous kernel patch, so you'll likely have to rediff your patches
against that...

I think bits of this patch (at least the support for the WPA & RSN
information elements in scans) should be upstreamed as soon as possible,
I'm willing to help with that too.
