Isn't that device supported by the in-tree RTL8192CU/RTL8188CU driver?
(CONFIG_RTL8192CU, drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/)

If it isn't, it should only be a matter of adding the USB Id of the
ASUS device.

Do we need formal permission from ASUS, or do we just take it ?

AFAICT the archive ASUS has made available contains a driver authored
by RealTek, so that would be where to ask.

The source files contains a statement that they are covered by GPLv2,
so formally you would not have to ask - although I'd consider it in
good taste to do so.
