- review changes necessary to get AC's approval for kernel integration
- Look at making the bus interface (PCMCIA, PCI, USB) more independent
- Review changes necessary for static linking to kernel
- Update MAC RID to 802.11 MIB mapping document
- Update MAC feature to 802.11 mapping document
- Add support for 128 bit WEP
- Add support for data-only promiscuous mode (so tcpdump will work)

- Display the MAC and BBP partnum & revision at initialization time
- Perform a more effective I/O access test and an irq test at
initialization time
- Detect dead card and perform reset and reinitialization
- Get rid of frame copy in conversion (use skb more effectively)

- Figure out the right way for the following OOB data to ride up and down
the stack:
- rx signal stats
- rx time
- rx/tx DCF/PCF
- rx/tx priority
- Fix the timeout foolishness in the hfa384x code
- Add an lnx command to query the rx signal stats:
(cumlative should be a weighted average)
last beacon rssi
last beacon sq
last beacon noise floor
cumlative beacon rssi
cumlative beacon sq
cumlative beacon noise floor
last data rssi
last data sq
last data noise floor
cumlative data rssi
