No, it wont. This here:

Is only cosmetical. If you don't like, you can go and change in 
main.c the function lbs_start_card(). Here I check for my 
firmware and don't start/initialize mesh at all.

So you can disable mesh based on the firmware version.

We could disable mesh via a module parameter (e.g. "modprobe 
libertas mesh=0") as well. Patch welcome :-)

A nice patch that disables all of mesh with a Kconfig option (and 
thus reduces the size of libertas.ko considerable) would get an 
ACK from me :-)

If both patches would be in, I'd even remove the explicit testing 
of firmware versions, otherwise we end up with a ton of firmware 
numbers that support this or that.
