Re: Intel Centrino 6300 Ultimate-N adapter

Well, I've got working wireless now... I haven't benchmarked or tested
for full feature compliance, but it is useable. Attached are diffs,
new files, and references to Intel firmware. I don't think I like the
PCI device name, but it apes what OpenBSD is using at the moment, so
the driver didn't require other modifications for the case of PCI
device name. This driver is based on the files that Sverre did supply
to me; Thanks Sverre. The unified diffs are based off -current as of
few minutes ago.

Thanks Sverre and Brett for your help and interest.

*Intel firmware pulled from
*attached .tgz expands to "6300" dir; Contents are to be applied from /usr/src
