New Linux WLAN subsystem integrated into mm kernel tree
In May and April 2006 it became clear that the devicescape WLAN stack will be the future base for the Linux WLAN drivers. The aim was to overcome the current situation of having several different subsystems for different drivers and to create a common, well documented subsystem. The kernel developers hope that this will improve the quality of the Linux WLAN drivers in general and that it will also make it easier to develop new drivers for that system.
