To the best of my knowledge this is the only such adapter. And it never really worked with OLPC's XOs either.

Iff you want to go with 80211s, I recommend that you take a look at the linux open80211s implementation.
(but that wont support meshing while the CPU is in suspend mode obviously).

So far for my experience,

PS: scalability is low with 802.11s.
