Thank you very much. Gerhard Brauer sent me patches for madwifi, I will 
update it as well.

This leaves the following:


These are i686-only binary modules. I say we leave them there until a) I 
get motivation to fix them or b) a user sends us a patch. Maintaining 
them has always been a PITA and I wonder if it's worth it.


Has been broken for quite some time (2.6.24 I think), we just leave it 
until Tom fixes it.


I say drop it. We used the wlan-ng USB driver for some exotic hardware, 
which apart from Tom nobody used (and his is broken now). This hardware 
is probably supported by p54usb now anyway.
