Actually, it's easy enough to pull the two or three functions needed
from the updated ieee80211 stack and make them private to the driver.
It then builds and works fine.

The answer as always for drivers in the main kernel package is "get it
upstream".  And for better or worse, I think that the regulatory daemon
is likely to be a big sticking point for the driver going upstream :(
