I sent a patch to NM list. It just switches NM to new DBus API. I will
send the AP mode and nl80211 patches later. What do you mean auto
fallback? You mean auto fallback from new DBus interface to the old one
if the new will not work somehow or rather you mean auto fallcack from
nl80211 to wext if it turns out that device doesn't work with nl80211?
