can someone please tell me about unresolved deps, please?

Thanks, wireless extensions now work!

There are a few issues that are still pending in the latest CVS code:
1) The default value for basic_rates is 3. Shouldn't it be 15?
2) WDS link autorate negotiation does not work with hostapd (it stays
stuck at 2Mbit) but it does in kernel mode. When I look at the stats of
the neighbor in /proc/.. I see that that the supported_rates are blank
when you use hostapd and they are filled in correctly in kernel mode.
3) Did the signal measurement conversion change? Before, the noise level
was around -100Dbm, now it is around -30Dbm.

Thanks in advance,
