The changes from yesterday added requirement for using the latest
linux/nl80211.h from wireless-dev#everything (i.e., the default branch
of wireless-dev is not enough; I don't actually know what is the exact
source of this, but 'everything' branch does seem to include it).
driver_devicescape.c will need to include that linux/nl80211.h one way
or the other (e.g., you can just copy it into /usr/include/linux or do
some other tricks to get it included).
