Also, do you have access to the 4500/4800 Developer's Manual?  I'm
curious what the status code 0x0600 for an EV_LINK event is (as seen in
airo_interrupt()).

#define AUTHFAIL 0x0300 /* Authentication failure (low byte is reason
			   code) */
#define ASSOCIATED 0x0400 /* Assocatied */

There's 0x400, but no 0x0200 which is what I'd expect is the case for a
status code of 0x0600 (ie 0x0400 + 0x0200).

Thanks!
Dan
