Yeah, though they won't get in for NM 0.8 which I'd like to release in
the next two weeks.  We can try to land them for NM 0.8.1 though with an
appropriate auto fallback so that a minor point-release doesn't change
the world.  Or some other mechanism so that we can easily get NM using
it and still keep the "stable" bits.  I'd anticipate that NM 0.8.2 or NM
0.9 would use nl80211 exclusively for drivers that support it.
