Do you know if anyone has tried changing this driver over to the
cfg80211 interface from the wireless extensions? With the
series I have prepared now, it is the only driver outside of
drivers/staging that still uses wext and stops us from removing
that altogether. 

[side note: it appears that the PS3 I have is the only model
 without wireless networking, as I bought cheapest Asian 20GB version
 back in early 2007. It still has the original firmware on it
 and should run Linux, but I haven't tried it since at least
