Hi,

I would very much appreciate if you could stay on list. Thanks.

mac80211 has all the required functionality, but no userspace interface
which is partially added in my patches. If you're building an 802.11
device you will want to write a mac80211 driver for it if it is a
half-mac design, and use hostapd. mac80211 itself has no code to handle
association etc.
