[git patches] net driver build fix + update

From: Jeff Garzik
Date: Thu Mar 23 2006 - 17:25:08 EST

[just sent to andrew/linus; patch omitted due to size]

* merges wireless "softmac" layer, enabling support for newer wireless
hardware which requires software management of low-level details.
Not quite winmodem level, in terms of hardware simplicity, but close.
* 'make allmodconfig' build fix, in the sky2 update.
