Subject[PATCH v2 1/2] wireless: move prism54 out to staging
Date
prism54 is deprecated in favor of the p54pci device driver. Although
only *one soul* had reported issues with it long ago Linux most Linux
distributions these days just disable the device driver given the
conflicts with the PCI IDs of p54pci and the *very* unlikely situation
of folks really need this driver anymore.

Before trying to due away with prism54 once more stuff it into staging,
which is our hospice for dying drivers.

- This enables support for FullMAC PCI/Cardbus prism54 devices. This
- driver is now deprecated in favor for the SoftMAC driver, p54pci.
- p54pci supports FullMAC PCI/Cardbus devices as well.

- For more information refer to the p54 wiki:

-
- Note: You need a motherboard with DMA support to use any of these cards
-
- When built as module you get the module prism54
