Some time ago I released the first public version of my "atuwi" driver (for 
Atmel usb wireless adapters). Since then I have made a lot of changes to the 
code and today it's time to release the next version...

Version 0.2 features :
* A nice step-by-step guide to installing and using the driver.
* Support for both RFMD and Intersil radio parts. 
* Support for Ad-hoc networks. 
* Support for Infrastructure mode (currently in infrastructure mode only 'open 
system' authentication is implemented).
* Setting the channel / SSID / WEP mode / WEP key / mac-addr via ifconfig.
* Automatic scanning and associating with a wireless network. 
* BPF support for both DLT_EN10MB and DLT_IEEE802_11.

* Improving the speed by issuing multiple transfers at the same time.
* Decreasing processing overhead with what I would like to call "Lazy transmit 
net-isr scheduling".

If you happen to have a USB WLAN adapter or if you're just interrested in my 
usb-improvements, feel free have a look at the driver :

I'd be happy to hear any possitive / negative feedback.
