The "split" patch is crap, I noticed that I somehow got more
errormessages with "make modules", which I did not get at "make
modules SUBDIRS=driver/net/wireless/libertas" time.
Some of the other patches have changed slightly. I'll re-post
them and/or put them into a git repository when I get one.

Ok, thanks for this info.
Currently I'm thinking to split some functions that are now
main.c into two parts. One of them, which is more general, to
stay in main.c. And the other which is USB-specific, is to go
into if_usb.c. That allows me to later use the general functions
from if_pcmcia.c as well.
However, sometimes it's not simple to just split them into two.
wlan_add_card might be splitted into more then just two
