This also applies to wireless_tools (and the entire kernel stack it
uses) being deprecated in favour of iw. Sadly there are a bunch of
poorly maintained drivers not ported to the new stack... all of the ones
listed here[1] as not having cfg80211 support are a problem. I'm not
sure if there's anything we can do about this yet.
