Glad to hear that it is working for you.  You may have seen the
problems reported here (less so probably the ones directly reported to
me) and I am working on fixing them to make it more flawless.
Keep an eye here for updates.

iwlwifi and the compat framework are currently limited to a/b/g.  Once the
above is done, there'll be only one direction to work on and that is n/ac/...
I'd long love to be at that point (as obviously everyone wants faster :-)

I think the main thanks should go to the Foundation for this one!
