eee 901 wireless updates

I got a lovely little eee 901 for work. It mostly seems like a useful machine, except for the position of the right shift key which is a disaster. (Placing my fingers on the home row, I've hovering over the up-arrow instead of shift. Hilarity ensues when trying to type '~' in the terminal or working on spreadsheets in any way).

However, the wireless driver isn't integrated into the kernel yet, and the old driver tarball is already broken on 2.6.27 release candidates. I was having a hard time finding who was working on it or where the code was. So, I cobbled together the patches I found wandering around the internet, and put up a git repo:

git clone git://

Don't expect this repo to necessarily get updated, but it'll probably get you going if you're on 2.6.27-rc2 or so today.
