[ANN] compat-wireless for 2.6.37

Its time for a 2.6.37 based release for upgrading your 802.11 /
Bluetooth / Ethernet drivers on older kernels now that 2.6.37 has been
released.

The good stuff:

http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-2.6-stable/v2.6.37/compat-wireless-2.6.37-2.tar.bz2
http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless-2.6-stable/v2.6.37/compat-wireless-2.6.37-2-sn.tar.bz2


compat-wireless 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.
