has changes to support multi-mode devices such as 11a/b/g wireless cards.
These use 3 of the free bits in the media word to specifiy an optional mode
that devices can honor. To manipulate this field there is a new "mode"
command line option to ifconfig. For example,
ifconfig ath0 mode 11g
operate my multi-mode Atheros wireless device in 11g mode.
Other changes in this diff add a "turbo" option for enabling turbo mode on
802.11 devices, add 802.11 subtype options for specifying 11g rates (CCK at
6,9,12,18,24,36,48, ad 54 Mb/s), and correct the spelling of OFDM.
These changed should not affect existing code. If I don't hear anything
negative back in a few days I'll commit it.
