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

2001-09-27
	* fixed bugs in AP resource releasing when card configuration fails
	* fixed SIOCGIWESSID length setting for Managed and Ad-hoc modes
	* fixed a bug in SIOCSIWFREQ ('iwconfig wlan0 freq' did not work)
	* try to reset card on timeout situations
	* added support for SIOCSIWNICKN and SIOCGIWNICKN
	* added support for dumping RX/TX frame headers
 	  ('iwpriv wlan0 dump <bitfield>')
	* added host-based TX rate control for Host AP mode
	  (STA f/w (at least v0.8.0) does not seem to handle TX rates properly,
	  so now the driver has an optional host-based mechanism for setting
	  TX rate for packets from DS to STAs.
	* added preliminary support for IWSPY when in Host AP mode
	* added (very) preliminary implementation of SIOCGIWRANGE
	* added example tools for handling monitored packets (sniff directory)
	* added support for ARPHDR_IEEE80211 type netdevice (e.g., for real
	  time 802.11 layer packet sniffing with Ethereal)
	* added support for systems using kernel tree PCMCIA

2001-07-11
	* First public release of the driver
