ChangeLog for Host AP driver for Intersil Prism2
+2001-11-05
+ * fixed a bug in AP's station list handling that may have resulted in
+ kernel crashes
+ * added RX rate statistics to AP's station information
+ * disabled WEP in Host AP mode since it does not work without
+ host driver implementation
+ * re-reset port when initializing card to fix some problems
+ with, e.g., D-Link DWL-650 with STA f/w 0.7.6 that did not start
+ Host AP mode correctly
+ * removed spin_lock for BAP1 since it is not really needed
+ * added code to support Linux kernel 2.2.x versions
+ * improved card reseting (it now uses COR software reset and
+ sets up proper port type after reset); this time I have even tested
+ reset code once ;-)
+ * added debug code to check BAP usage; I have seen odd error
+ scenarios with Compaq WL200 under high load (BAP becoming busy in
+ the middle of read sequence, read returning 0x8000 all the time even
+ though offset register is not busy, etc.); this debug code seems to
+ fix some problems and in addition it provides more debugging info
