The discussion then hinged around cfg80211/regdb and of course things
didn't go as quickly as planned. So there's two paths here: (1) make
sure the patch still applies to 2.6.32 and below and repost as a stable
update, then we'll go through review again etc, and (2) make it work
through cfg80211 in 2.6.33+.
I'm not opposed to adding the parameter (as I said back in 2008) to
already released kernels as long as we understand that it's a dead-end
for 2.6.33+ with the work that Holger's done for cfg80211.
