The version I have running (prior to my own changes) is indeed the latest version I could find on Harrald's site. As I discussed, the things that needed to be swapped are being swapped only by accident, and Harrald's patch basically unswaps all the things that shouldn't have been in the first place.

I don't know what's in the "unreleased" patch, not having seen it. If it addresses these concerns, fine, I've only wasted two days. Otherwise, I am willing to put in the time to debug and polish the code, especially since it is becoming a model for other wireless drivers. Once I have it working as well for me as Harrald's version works, I would offer it as a patch to pcmcia-cs-3.1.19 for others to try before submitting any changes to the codebase.

I certainly don't wish to trample on anyone's toes, and I have the utmost admiration for those who have made these devices work at all. I just think it can/should be made more straightforward and understandable.

  I've got to offer you my sincere apologies. I didn't exactly understand where you were going and I did jump on my guns too quickly.
  Now, all I can say is to go ahead with what you are doing, because it's worthwhile. And if you end up beeing the maintainer of the wvlan_cs driver, the better.
  Just try to sync with Harrald and Benjamin, because both are working on this stuff. The patch of Harrald is comming via e-mail...
  Again, sorry...


P.S. : For me, I've got lot's of admiration for people willing to jump on the train and contribute further ;-)
