Silly question - HostAP in kernel tree

I was under the impression that the HostAP driver would be in the
official kernel tree from version 2.6.11 (don't ask me why... thought I
saw it somewhere but can't remember where). This didn't happen so I
wanted to ask if this is something that is foreseeable (2.6.12 maybe)?
If this is in the works, would it be at all possible to include the
default mode that the driver uses in the kernel config? I would very
much love to use HostAP rather than the Hermes/Orinoco one(s), I've had
much more pleasant results from HostAP. However, I don't like the fact
that I have to compile the driver manually after each kernel update (I
know, it's not a big deal at all... just that after building the kernel
for 5 minutes I really would like to be done with it) so since the
Orinoco driver does work I use that instead currently.
Anyways, these are just curiosity questions.
Kind regards, Stefan Freyr.
