I'd like to work on this as well. I just pulled down the iwn code from
OpenBSD current a little while ago and started hacking on it. I
haven't made a lot of progress, so I'll gladly work with you on it.

I'm a decent C programmer, but my lack of knowledge of kernel
internals, functions, and data structures is my stumbling block.
That's one of the main reasons I'm all about getting this driver
working -- it gives me yet another chance to get into the kernel
source and learn something new.

Where do we begin?
