Re: HostAP driver on iPAQ

Just as a note the HostAP driver works unmodified on the Tuxscreen (Shannon) ARM platform with a 2.4.16 kernel, so there shouldn't be large architectural issues. Perhaps there were some toolchain differences... the Tuxscreen buildroot I believe used the LART toolchain and IIRC the Familiar/etc. people may use another.

Sorry I don't have any more concrete help to offer.
