so besides the BSS change notification (which doesn't apply anymore), I
have send all patches to the mailing list. Just use git am to apply them
and to keep the authorship. For reference they are in this order:

[PATCH] dbus: Use simple strings for debug level
[PATCH] dbus: Replace StateChanged with PropertiesChanged signal
[PATCH] dbus: fix BSS WPS/WPA/RSN IE property getters
[PATCH] dbus: Change BSS property MaxRate to Rates
[PATCH] dbus: aggregate PropertiesChanged signals
