OSDL wireless summit, part II

Wow, that was fast. The OSDL wireless summit is almost over before we got started, but we managed to coordinate and discuss an amazing amount of issues during the last two days.

Many interesting things have been discussed, including but certainly not limited to the Devicescape wireless stack, the recently included ieee80211-softmac stack and their future in the Linux kernel. Jean Tourrilhes gave an interesting talk on the history of wireless support in the Linux kernel, and Personal Telco Project gave some interesting insight into their problems with the current state of wireless support on embedded Linux.

More information will follow later. Tonight we will have an unofficial dinner with the Gentoo developers from around here, gonna be nice getting some faces tied onto the names from IRC and the mailing lists.
