I've just ported the 'an' driver from FreeBSD without substantial

Port 'an' driver for Aironet PC4500/PC4800 IEEE802.11 card from FreeBSD.
This is very adhoc work for IETF meeting.
- Since it seems that 'an' and 'wi' have similar hardware, low level
  functions should be shared.
- There are PCI/ISA cards of Aironet but not supported yet.
- The wiconfig interface is changed so that wiconfig cannot be used.
- 'ancontrol' of FreeBSD is not ported.
- Only infrastructure mode is tested.
- WEP is not supported.

Though I only have an Aironet card, Cisco card should be expected to work.
