This comment is long gone and I wasn't even aware that it ever

wireless handler was already actived, see;a=commitdiff;h=876c9d3aeb989cf1961f2c228d309ba5dcfb1172

This generates a HUGE web page with the source of the libertas
driver when it was initially committed to wireless-2.6/everything 
and thus made it's way into mainline kernel.

So your libertas driver is older than anything I know of and
therefore I can't be of much help to you.

However, libertas is quite self-contained. It should be 
relatively easy to compile the contents of the recent 
drivers/net/wireless/libertas against an older kernel. If you 
try that and run into problems, then feel free to ask. Be sure 
to use wireless-2.6/everything, for such experiments, as this is 
the code-base that I'm most familiar --- and where development
