sorry, all i was asking for was a 'does it work?'... if there was a
known problem then it's a bit of a waste of time me discovering it all
I tracked it down earlier this morning though, once I excluded
hostap_crypt.c from the Makefile it all worked fine. I'm running with
2.6.0-test3 as I type this. I've always copied the files into the kernel
tree and compiled from there with a 'make -j5 modules'. I believe the
kernel patch for 2.6.0-test2 (and therefore also -test3) should have
hostap_crypt.c removed from the makefile. It certainly works fine
without it being there and doesn't work with it.
