John W. Linville - Jan. 9, 2013, 7:18 p.m.
Dave,

Please pull this batch of fixes (and a new driver) for the 3.8 stream...

Included is a mac80211 pull, of which Johannes says the following:

'This includes a number of fixes for various pieces of mac80211. I've
also included Thomas's memory RMC hash table optimisation since it
saves so much memory.'

Also from Johannes is an iwlwifi pull:

'I have two fixes for iwlwifi: one to fix a lost return value that was
dropped in a previous patch and could cause "nobody cared" IRQ messages,
and one to work around a firmware issue.'

Amitkumar Karwar brings an mwifiex for a typo in an comparison.

Bing Zhao gives us an mwifiex fix to properly check the return value
from wait_event_interruptible and handle it properly.

Chen Gang provides a fix to make iwlegacy use strlcpy instead of
strncpy, avoiding a potential buffer underflow.

Julian Wollrath fixes a typo in an error message in rtlwifi.

Larry Finger brings a b43 fix for a firmware loading problem.

Nickolai Zeldovich avoids a use-after-free in the mwl8k driver.

Vladimir Kondratiev brings the last big piece, the new Qualcomm/Atheros
wil6210 802.11ad driver.  Since it is for new hardware, I hope that
taking it for 3.8 is not a problem.

Please let me know if there are problems!

Thanks,

John
