Hi Colin,
    do you think I could try porting the current freebsd driver for RALink to 
the current framework you have developed? Would the API exposed to the drivers 
will be very different when you have developed the Haiku specific wifi stack? I 
am currently trying to understand your work and the FreeBSD Compatibility 
layer. I am trying to see if the RALink driver can leverage your port like the 
Atheros FreeBSD driver does.

I'm working on writing a Wifi-Stack for Haiku which will also be compatible to 
the FreeBSD 7.1 WiFi-Stack. There is no code you could base your driver on, but 
if you have some question about FreeBSD specific WiFi topics, feel free to ask.
