It'll be great to see this supported, thanks for doing the work!

Some laptops feature builtin wireless that is only supported by Windows
(like the Broadcome one), so sometimes the ndis wrapper is the only way
to go.

When you talk about 64bit systems, do you mean 64bit windows x64 drivers
on amd64, or 32bit windows drivers on amd64 systems? I've heard that
64bit windows drivers use SSE instructions, which we don't support
in the kernel.
