ChangeLog:

I've only test compiled so far against 2.6.35 the entire tarball and
only load tested against iwlagn.

The boring verbiage:

Linus moved on with life and released 2.6.38, we get to do the same
now with our backported BT, 802.11 and networking components down to
the latest supported kernel listed on kernel.org (sometimes even
further). We get two releases, a vanilla release and a secondary
release that has patches sucked out from linux-next.git which are
pending to be propagated into 2.6.38.1 and also a select few cherry
picked patches from linux-next.git which are not stable material but
have been reported to help with stability.

The pending-stable stuff sucked out from linux-next.git :

A lot of these patches have required a manual backport so feel free to
reuse elsewhere if you find useful.

===============================================
ChangeLog for compat-wireless for linux-2.6.38
===============================================

This is the ChangeLog for the Linux kernel project compat-wireless.
It provides a backport of a few Linux kernel subsystems down to
older kernels:

* 802.11
* Bluetooth
* Ethernet

For more details refer to the home page:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download/stable/

The compat-wireless project consists of code from three projects:

* The Linux kernel: linux-2.6-allstable.git
* Compat-wirelesS: compat-wireless.git
* Compat: compat.git

The compat-wireless stable releases incorporates code from from
each of these git trees for the respective upstream Linux kernel
stable release. A branch called linux-2.6.3x.y exists for each
stable release. Below we provide the ChangeLog of changes from
the previous branched release to the new branched release.
