The remaining differences are only in orinoco.c and orinoco.h. However,
it's more than just monitor mode and scanning. The driver in 2.6.12-rc1
is basically version 0.14alpha2, and there have been more changes since
then. For example, support for joining a specific access point.
David submitted previous changes. I can submit the rest if David hasn't
done it. David?
