[ANN] compat-wireless release for Linux 3.0

Linus flushed out Linux 3.0, the respective backport of that release
for the 802.11, Bluetooth and Networking subsystems is available now
[1]. Thanks for all the contributions, below are the compat.git and
compat-wireless.git contributions, for more details please refer to
the complete ChangeLog [2], and the stable compat-wireless page page
[3]. I've compile tested this against 2.6.38 and loaded iwlagn
successfully.

To discuss if we want to expand this framework to include other
subsystems we can talk about it in person at the 2011 Linux Plumbers
conference [4], should the BoF proposal get accepted. Farewell 2.6.x
days.

===============================================
ChangeLog for compat-wireless for linux-3.0
===============================================

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.
