Ulf, what do you need done to this driver patch before it can go in?
The commit message seems like it could use some rewriting at this point
(Personally I would drop the detailed changelogs from Stefan and Gerd,
updating the last paragraph here to give them credit), but what's
important to me is getting the driver in so that distros don't have to
carry this patch for wifi support.
