Ok, thanks. Turns out that what I thought was new, was old, and vice
versa. Spent some of the weekend adapting a patch against the old code.
My mistake I suppose - teach me the basics of this here project ;-)

Anyway, some patching up was necessary anyhow (mostly, unfortunately,
due to the fact that there is no stable nl80211 userland API on Linux,
differing wildly among distributions and no real sure way to know what
version you're dealing with on the basis of #defines and whatnot)

Which leads me to another question: is there something in the course of
'make' that I could use to create a 'configure' like situation
(discovery of certain uses of header files, function prototypes and
defines) ?
