No, I didn't download either Jouni's WPS code or that contributed by two
other companies (Atheros and Marvell IIRC). Since you re-posted the
code, I have been considering whether to look at it or not. On the pro
side of this argument, it seems silly for there to be two overlapping
implementations and I think it would be best to merge what I have into
his. But on the con side, his code originally got yanked over legal
concerns and I would hate to contribute to that headache. Jouni, can you
comment on the status of this code?
