mac80211 compat-wireless stable releases

Do you think it might be possible to take advantage of the stable compat-wireless releases?

I may be wrong, but when you rebuild your system the default choice is to get the bleeding edge version of the mac80211 package, right?

I was thinking of an option in menuconfig where the user could choose between using the stable release according to the kernel version found in target/target_name/Makefile or using the bleeding edge version.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The stable releases have several critical issues which were fixed in the bleeding edge releases.
I will continue to integrate tested snapshots of the bleeding edge stuff with extra bugfixes, as at the moment that seems to be the best tradeoff for getting something usable.

As soon as the stable snapshots become more usable for embeddded hw, I might consider adding them as an option, but right now I don't think it's a good idea.
