Almost certainly because of this commit:

commit 2218228392080f0ca2fc2974604e79f57b12c436
Author: Kirill A. Shutemov <kirill shutemov name>
Date:   Tue Apr 22 16:38:55 2008 +0300

    Make linux/wireless.h be able to compile

I may have let this slip by due to the "able to compile" bit --
should I not have merged it?  I don't have a record or recollection
of what motivated the patch originally.
