I looked at it, I guess I got carried away moving around code when I made the
patch and forgot to copy in the copyright notice. The notice looks like this:

 * WPA Supplicant - driver interaction with MADWIFI 802.11 driver
 * Copyright (c) 2004, Sam Leffler <sam at>
 * This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
 * it under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2 as

 * See README and COPYING for more details.

Though you may not think so, it's the original copyright notice from the Zydas
wpa_supplicant code.

I can deliver an updated patch if necessary, but do you really need it for
anything ?

I hope you're aware that newer versions of the USB driver don't seem to work
with the Zydas zd1211 wpa_supplicant driver. I hope you also noticed that
there's a patch to the USB driver, which uses the wext wpa_supplicant driver,
so it can use stock wpa_supplicant.

Seems an updated USB driver might be on the way, so in a few days it may not
be necessary to patch anything.
