Indeed it has - I had no problems compiling hostap 0.2.0-cum-CVS against the
2.6.2 kernel.

I get a strange wifi0 interface under 2.6.0, 2.6.1 and 2.6.2. I think it's
a weird bug in the CVS code.

So am I - I kept getting interrupt storms with the orinoco_cs drivers (for
which development is somewhat calcified, BTW). And the linux-wlan-ng drivers
are too hard and too complex to set up (I fought with them for months before
going with orinoco_cs, and now hostap).
