While reviewing this for the last time I did some minor changes in the pending branch:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/wireless/wireless-next.git/commit/?h=pending&id=68d57a07bfe5bb29b80cd8b8fa24c9d1ea104124

Here's the commit log I plan to use:

wireless: add plfxlc driver for pureLiFi X, XL, XC devices

This is a driver for pureLiFi X, XL, XC devices which use light to transmit
data, so they are not compatible with normal Wi-Fi devices. The driver uses
separate NL80211_BAND_LC band to distinguish from Wi-Fi. The driver is based
on 802.11 softMAC Architecture and uses native 802.11 for configuration and
management. Station and Ad-Hoc modes are supported.

The driver is compiled and tested in ARM, x86 architectures and compiled in
powerpc architecture. This driver implementation has been based on the zd1211rw
driver.

And the list of changes I made:

* rewrote the commit log

* change MAINTAINER to be only for plfxlc

* CONFIG_PURELIFI_XLC -> CONFIG_PLFXLC

* purelifi_xlc.ko -> plfxlc.ko

* improve Kconfig help text

* _LF_X_CHIP_H -> PLFXLC_CHIP_H

* PURELIFI_MAC_H -> PLFXLC_MAC_H

* _PURELIFI_USB_H -> PLFXLC_USB_H

* upload_mac_and_serial() -> plfxlc_upload_mac_and_serial()

Unless I don't get any comments I'm planning to merge this on Wednesday.
